Ed Cowle of Thorium Energy pointed me to this real gem of a document recently:

USGS-805: Principal Thorium Resources of the United States


It was published by the US Geological Survey back in 1979, and goes through in a fair amount of detail the thorium resources then identified in the US. As you might expect, not much has changed since then.

According to the website, there's three different ways to get the document, but I could only get one of them to work, and not in the way they suggested. It was to download the document in the DejaVu format (.djvu) and go find a reader that would recognize .djvu files. I found a pretty good one here that worked on Windows machines:

WinDjView & MacDjView

Once I downloaded the WinDjView program and started it and opened the file in it, it looked great. Made me wonder if I shouldn't convert a lot of the documents in the repository to .djvu format...
