A redistribution of radium-226 in uranium ore deposits produces a characteristic pattern of disequilibrium in which uranium is greater than equivalent uranium in high-grade samples and equivalent uranium is greater than uranium in low-grade samples. The redistribution is a continuous process in uranium deposits, and the resulting pattern of disequilibrium is itself a system in equilibrium.
