Title: PROGRESS REPORT FOR THE PERIOD JULY 1, 1952 TO AUGUST 29, 1952

Abstract

Test data are given on performance of solution spray columns in the process for the recovery of uranium and vanadium from carbonate leach solutions by sodiumamalgam. Studies are presented on the electrolytic precipitation of uranium and vanadium from carbonate leach solutions using a diaphragm cell with a mercury cathode. Test work includes studies on variation in current efficiency with cathode current density, evaluation of diaphragm materials, separate electrolytic precipitation of uranium and vanadium, use of cathode materials other than mercury, and regeneration of the barren leach solution. The results of a few tests using adsorption as a means for the recovery of uranium and vanadium are given. (auth)
