In Situ Leach and Conventional Uranium-Recovery

2020-6-7  From 1972 through 1985, uranium recovery in Texas was dominated by conventional mining and milling. More recently, companies (licensees) have been using In Situ Leaching (ISL), a process that makes possible the recovery of uranium without disturbing the natural surface, generating dust, or producing waste known as tailings.

Solution (in situ leach) mining of uranium: an overview ...

When uranium is mined using in-situ leach techniques, the chemical quality of the ground water in the ore-zone aquifer is affected. This could lead to long-term degradation of the ground water if restoration techniques are not applied after the leaching is completed.

The paper reports results of a post-leach study following nearly three years of uranium in-situ leaching in a South Texas ore body. Wells drilled in strategic locations were logged (including delayed fission neutron (DFN) and gamma-ray logs) and cored and the recovered core chemically analyzed. Overall uranium recovery for the total 11.9 m (39 ...

2016-12-29  In this paper, uranium ore samples collected from different hole depth and different numbered hole. The effects of uranium speciation to in situ leaching of uranium were analyzed by sequential chemical extraction and sulfuric acid leaching tests. These results imply that the distribution characteristics of uranium speciation are significantly different whether they are in the same numbered ...

Uranium Mining in Eastern Germany: The WISMUT

2016-2-22  The uranium was mined in open pits and in underground mines. The largest open pit called "Lichtenberg" is located near Ronneburg. Its initial depth was 240 meters; after being partly refilled, the depth was still 160 meters at an open volume of 80 million m 3 in 1990. After depletion of the ore deposits located near the surface, mining continued at this place to depths of 500 meters.

Impacts of Uranium In-Situ Leaching

2020-11-20  In the case of in-situ leaching (ISL) - also called in-situ recovery (ISR), or solution mining - the uranium-bearing ore is not removed from its geological deposit, but a leaching liquid is injected through wells into the ore deposit, and the uranium-bearing liquid is pumped to the surface from other wells. In-situ leaching gains importance for the exploitation of low grade ore deposits, for ...

Uranium processing - Leaching Britannica

Uranium processing - Uranium processing - Leaching: Roasted uranium ores are leached of their uranium values by both acidic and alkaline aqueous solutions. For the successful operation of all leaching systems, uranium must either be initially present in the more stable hexavalent state or be oxidized to that state in the leaching process. Acid leaching is commonly performed by agitating an ore ...
