Title: PROGRESS REPORT FOR THE PERIOD SEPTEMBER 1, 1952 TO OCTOBER 31, 1952

Abstract

The work performed during the period on process development for recovery of uranium and vanadium from carbonate leach solutions is reported. Work presented on the electrolytic precipitation of urarium and vanadium includes studies on cathode materials, diaphragm materials, effects of modifying operating variables and experimental procedure, and tests utilizing the low vanadium leach solution receiwed recentiy from Monticello. Test work is reported on the regeneration of the barren leach solution in the sodium-amalgam process. Other studies are reported on packed columns, leach solution with high initial pH, mercury losses, and results obtainable with low-vamadium leach solution. Additional studies are reported on the possibilities of adsorption as a recovery method. Qualitative studies on the chemistry of uramium in carbonate solutions are discussed in conjunction with the process development studies. (auth)
