In-situ Leaching Studies of Uranium Ores--Phase IV.
NTIS: PB 296-336 :501 pages
This report describes the effect of uranium ore composition and permeability as well as leaching variables on uranium recovery in simulated in situ leaching experiments. The mineralogical characteristics of Texas and Wyoming ores were identified before and after crushing and grinding, and the post-leach residues were examined to determine the effect of the leach on ore minerals. Gas blockage, clay swelling, and clay dispersion as affected by increasing pressure, high oxygen concentration, and solution composition were also investigated.
