Title: PROCESS FOR THE RECOVERY OF METALS FROM HIGH-LIME CARNOTITE ORES

Abstract

A process is presented for recovering uranium values from a high-lime carnotite ore comprising contacting the ore dispersed in a finely divided state with a concentrated mineral acid, adding an industrial orgnnic solvent containing alkyl ontho or pyro phosphoric acids, alkyl phosphates or alkyl phosphonates so as to effect an organic phase into which the metal value is leached and then recovering the metal value from the organic phase.
