Here is a comparison:


Thorium is also safer, is much more abundant and has greater potential of generating energy.

Here is an example:


This is the reserve in tonnes according to IAEA
  • India: 519,000; 21%
  • Australia: 489,000; 19%
  • USA: 400,000; 13%
  • Turkey: 344,000; 11%
  • Venezuela: 302,000; 10%
  • Brazil: 302,000; 10%
  • Norway: 132,000; 4%
  • Egypt: 100,000; 3%
  • Russia: 75,000; 2%
  • Greenland: 54,000; 2%
  • Canada: 44,000; 2%
  • South Africa: 18,000; 1%
  • "Other countries": 33,000; 2%
  • "World total": 2,810,000
