Study on the formation process of mountains provides important clues for evaluating the uplift and erosion related to long-term changes of geological environment for geological disposal. Provenance analysis of detrital sediments is often be effective to understand the process. In the Tono Geoscience Center, quick and efficient mineralogical and chemical analyses for heavy minerals in basement rocks and sediments have been developed using the electron probe microanalyzer (JEOL JXA-8530F EPMA), as one of the promising tool for provenance analysis. To contribute evaluation of the analyses, sample preparation and EPMA analyses of heavy minerals were shown in this paper.

CHIME monazite dating; Pb analysis on an R$$_{rm R}$$ =100 mm spectrometer and correction of interferences between Th, U, and Pb with natural monazite

Shimizu, Mayuko; Shibata, Kenji*; Suzuki, Kazuhiro; Sueoka, Shigeru; Niwa, Masakazu

Journal of Mineralogical and Petrological Sciences, 112(2), p.88 - 96, 2017/04

This paper outlines an advanced procedure involving the chemical Th-U-total Pb isochron method (CHIME) dating of monazite using a field-emission electron probe microanalyzer (FE-EPMA) equipped with spectrometers of 100 mm Rowland circle (R$$_{rm R}$$) radius. The higher count rate of R$$_{rm R}$$ = 100 mm wavelength dispersive spectrometer (WDS) compared to R$$_{rm R}$$ = 140 mm WDS enables measurements to be taken in a shorter time. CHIME dating using R$$_{rm R}$$ = 100 mm WDS had previously been difficult because of lower resolution compared to that of R$$_{rm R}$$ = 140 mm WDS. This problem has been overcome by a new interference correction method using natural monazites.

Mineralogical analysis and dating using the JEOL JXA-8530F FE-EPMA at the JAEA Tono Geoscience Center

Shimizu, Mayuko; Sano, Naomi; Suzuki, Kazuhiro

Nagoya Daigaku Nendai Sokutei Kenkyu, 1, p.36 - 43, 2017/03

We established a CHIME monazite dating method using R$$_{rm R}$$ = 100 mm spectrometers and a provenance analysis method using heavy minerals for the dating and analysis of minerals. CHIME dating has traditionally been performed with conventional R$$_{rm R}$$ = 140 mm spectrometers for measurement of U, Th, and Pb. These spectrometers, however, have low count rates in measurements of Pb. We used a JEOL JXA-8530F FE-EPMA equipped with R$$_{rm R}$$ = 100 mm spectrometers, a system installed at Tono Geoscience Center in 2014, for the CHIME dating of monazite. We corrected the spectral interferences peculiar to R$$_{rm R}$$ = 100 mm spectrometers by the method of AA mli and Griffin (1975) for monazite analyses. We calculated the correction factors by a new interference correction method using natural monazites. We also established a quick quantitative analysis and identification method for heavy minerals using the EPMA.

The concept of geological disposal of high-level radioactive waste (HLW) in Japan is based on a multibarrier system which combines a stable geological environment with an engineered barrier system. Potential geological host formations and their surroundings are chosen, in particular, for their long-term stability, taking into account the fact that Japan is located in tectonically active zone. This report is to outline 7 years plan (fiscal years 2015-2021) of research and development (R&D) for geosphere stability for long-term isolation of the HLW in JAEA. Background of this research is clarified with the necessity and the significance, and the past progress in this report. The objectives, outline, contents and schedule during the next 7 years are described in detail. In addition, the plan framework is structured into the following categories: (1) Development and Systematization of investigation techniques, (2) Development of models for long-term estimation and effective assessment, (3) Development of dating techniques.
