For fellow Aussies on the list Uranyl Nitrate can be sourced from Vanbar
(www.http://www.vanbar.com.au/catalogue/index.php then LHS menu

The pricing for this is:
Photochem Uranyl Nitrate 10 gm
(Ref No: 05561-0010)   AUD Inc. Tax: $50.16    AUD Ex. Tax: $45.60
Export: USD 34.52

While they list an export price I would love to hear what happens when
someone actually tries to place an export order. 

Alternatively if you live where I do (Townsville, far north Queensland)
you can always go to the nearby non-operational 'Ben Lomond' uranium
mine and collect your own. If uranotypes are too much trouble just
collect creek water near the mine to use as a print intensifier. Just be
careful of the crocodiles and remember to wear gloves ;-)

I'd previously seen your uranium article on Unblinking Eye and would
like to try the process at some stage. 
I'll have to make a trip up to the mine soon. Next birthday I'll have to
ask for some lead underwear.

Subject: [Spam Detected] Uranium Nitrate (uranyl nitrate)

About once a month I get people writing to me who want to make
uranotypes (uranium prints) and want to know where they can get uranium
nitrate.  They write to me because I have various articles published on
the web on how to make uranotypes. I would like to help these people but
I honestly do not know where to get this chemical compound.

Therefore, I appeal to the list. Do any of you have any uranium nitrate
that you would be willing to donate or sell to  me. so that I can
redistribute it to these people. Also, does anyone know of a source of
uranium nitrate?  It is in the form of yellow crystals which are highly
soluable in water.

Thanks for any help.
