None, or very, very little in the mantles being sold these days.  For awhile 
the off-brand ones sold in Wal-Mart and elsewhere still contained Thorium 
even after it was removed from the Coleman products, but I believe even 
those have disappeared now.  It's a shame since they made really nice check 
sources.  They still show up on eBay as check sources from time to time.
