4 Uranium Mining, Processing, and Reclamation Uranium

T his chapter outlines the basic steps involved in mining, processing, and reclamation that might be suitable for uranium ore deposits in the Commonwealth of ia. For uranium ore deposits, the choice of mining methods and processing options is very deposit-specific and dependent on many variables such as the quality and quantity of the ore, the shape and depth of the ore deposit, site

Bacterial-assisted heap leaching of ores Nalco Chemical

Mar 23, 1993Heap leaching is a commercially viable method of extracting the desired metal from low grade ores. There exist large deposits of refractory ores that are not amenable to conventional leaching. The metal, such as gold, may be physically entrapped in a matrix of sulfide metals, such as iron pyrite and arsenopyrite. The present invention

Heap leaching is typical of most mineral extraction methods in that it is easy to grasp in concept and difficult to perfect in practice. At first glance, percolating a solution through a pile of crushed rock to capture metal values sounds like the easiest possible way to recover gold, copper and other amenable metals, surpassed in simplicity only by in situ mining.
