Stored Technology for Possible Use in Uranium Ore Processing.
Uranium Ore Processing Vienna Austria Reprint Iaea-ag/33-7 PP 79-90 :12 pages
Although no major flowsheet changes have been made in recent years, the uranium industry has produced a number of processing innovations which have not been fully utilized. It is probable that several of these techniques can offer improvements over current processing methods. Recently, development studies and applications of continuous ion exchange have increased; also, renewed interest in leaching modifications and autogenous grinding have become evident. In general, uranium processing has matured and is effectively used with ores now being fed to mills throughout the world. Much of the current development work relates to unit operations and processes for lower grade ore.
