A one-column Versene ion exchange step is planned for the final purification either with or without metathesis. Chemical procedures have been investigated for dissolving or loosening the siliceous crud from the slugs in order to eliminate the prefiltration step. Design is progressing on a filter for separation of Lead-Barium sulfate and carbonate precipitations, after prefiltration of the UNH with filter aid to remove filter plugging siliceous crud.
