        Paper reports all the experimental and practical work performed on the development of a method for recovering Th from the catalysts used in the hydrogenation of CO.  The results of the entire work are contained in a patent application.  The method consists in precipitating Th-K2SO4 from the Fe-Th sediments obtained by precipitation by adding K2SO4.  After separation and washing, this is transformed into Th bicarbonate by boiling in concentrated soda solution.
