Uranium | Geoscience Australia

Uranium (U) is a radioactive element that averages one to four parts per million in the Earth's crust. Natural uranium contains about 0.7% of the U 235 isotope (the fissile isotope) and 99.2%of the U 238 isotope. Concentrations of uranium minerals such as uraninite, carnotite and brannerite can form commercial deposits.
