Formula: UO2
Description: Th-bearing uraninite (5%). Disseminated in muscovitic albitic post-Cadomian ± greisenized highly-differenciated granite stock (-60, -95 and -130 levels). Uraninite is linked with albitization. Three types of occurrence are known : - Automorph, rounded or xenomorph in pyrite - With arsenopyrite, sphalerite and bismuth/bismuthinite - Cemented by organic matter at the contact of pyrite (late)/phyllite (early)/molybdenite - Rims brecciated zircons (L. Chauris, C. Laforêt and J. Cotten, Bull. Minéral. , 1985, 108, pp. 955-958).
