Uranium Bioleaching - MINTEK

In the 1990s, Mintek undertook extensive research into the bioleaching of typical Witwatersrand uranium- and gold-bearing ores and concentrates. It was found that the low temperature of the bioleaching process, which was restricted to 35 °C, resulted in such slow uranium extraction rates that the process could not compete with the conventional ...
