Leaching of uranium from Elliot Lake ore in the presence of bacteria: M38-8/4E-PDF

"Testing by the Departments of Mines and Technical Surveys and of Agriculture showed that mine water and slope ore from Denison Mines contained bacteria belonging to the Ferrobacillus-Thiobacillus group. Percolation leach tests showed that the bacteria promote the production of an acid-oxidizing solution effective in leaching, whereas in the absence of bacteria no leaching of the uranium occurred"--p. 64.
