Examples

  • You're better off looking for the higher grade - "epithermal" - smaller vein, higher grade, near-surface deposits that will have an easier time of actually going the whole distance and getting into production.

    Gold Sector and Stocks Analysis from Seeking Alpha

  • Three of the six systems are fast reactors, one can be built as a fast reactor, and one is described as epithermal - these five are described below.

    Fast neutron reactors (FBR)

  • Three of the six are fast reactors, one can be built as a fast reactor, one is described as epithermal, and only two operate with slow neutrons like today's plants.

  • El Dorado and the vast majority of gold-bearing systems in El Salvador are of a deposit type that is the single cleanest type of primary metal deposit on the planet low-sulfidation epithermal.

    El Salvador Really Isn't All That Far From the U.S.A.

  • It is not a fast reactor, but with some moderation by the graphite is epithermal (intermediate neutron speed).

    Small nuclear power reactors

  • While not strictly a fast neutron reactor, the uranium fuel is dissolved in the sodium fluoride salt coolant which circulates through graphite core channels to achieve some moderation and an epithermal neutron spectrum.

    Fast neutron reactors (FBR)

  • In an MSR, the Uranium fuel is dissolved in the sodium fluoride salt coolant, which circulates through graphite core channels to achieve some moderation and an epithermal neutron spectrum.

    Generation IV nuclear reactors

  • Thermal, epithermal, and fast neutrons interact with atomic nuclei creating secondary ionizing radiation and are called indirectly ionizing radiation.

    Electromagnetic radiation

  • The company believes the vein system may be an unrecognized silver-gold district bonanza, similar to other silver-gold bonanza epithermal vein districts of western Mexico, such as the Tayoltita District.

    Asian Investors Hunting for Gold in Toronto

  • Previous drilling and a 2004 Gradient Array Resistivity geophysical survey indicate potential for identifying economic quantities of high-grade gold and silver mineralization in the Capgold epithermal system, as most of the gold and silver identified at Capgold to date has been found within large zones of silicification which are receptive to identification by resistivity measurement surveys.
