Flotation of uranium ores from the Elliot Lake area, Ontario: M34-20/2E-PDF

"The method and results of a series of flotation tests on several Elliot Lake uranium ores are given. The reagents used were NaOH and Na2SiO3 in a desliming step, and tall oil fatty acid, Acintol FA-1 or FA-2, was used as collector. The average recovery obtained was 92% in about 55% of the weight. The leach feed was up-graded from 0.1 to about 0.2% U308. The cost of the flotation reagents would be 25 to 30 cents per ton. A saving of about 20 cents per lb of uranium would be effected."--Abstract.
