Energy from Thorium

  A cubic meter of average Earth's crust has 12 grams of Thorium in it.  That would be enough to power your life at current Western standards for ten to fifteen years. -Kirk Sorensen, Google Tech Talk  
That would mean that you don't need a rich deposit of Thorium in order to have useful amounts of it.  Likewise, if it is a rich deposit, not much ore needs to be mined and processed so that you can get a lot of energy out of it.
