uranium ore milling process

  • Uranium How Is It Mined

    The milling process involves crushing and pulverizing the rock into very fine fragments and adding water to create a slurry This slurry is then mixed with sulfuric acid or an alkaline solution to release the uranium from the host rock Normally approximately 9598 of the uranium can be recovered from the host rock.
