After drilling and blasting in the open pit uranium mine or underground mine, the hard rock uranium ore from the stope will be transported…

Uranium Processing plant In the uranium ore processing plant, the uranium ore is delivered to the primary crushers, then the ores are normally processed by grinding the ore materials to a uniform particle size and then treating the ore to extract the uranium by chemical leaching. The milling process commonly yields dry powder-form material consisting of natural uranium, "yellowcake," which is sold on the uranium market as U3O8.

Kazakhstan, Canada, and Australia are the top three producers, the other uranium producing countries are Namibia, Russia, Niger, Uzbekistan, and the United States. And South Australia operates the world's largest known uranium resource.

Uranium Crushing Plant

After primary crushing, the uranium ore is reduced to 20cm in diameter, then the crushed ore will be conveyed to the coarse crushing machine for further crushing.

The crushed uranium passed through a further three crushing stages, further reducing its size to the consistency of fine sand. The final size will be down to 2mm, then the screening plant will sieve and separate the crushed uranium ore to the demand size. After weighing, the uranium ore will be stored on a stockpile for grinding.

Uranium Grinding Mills

Construction of the uranium ore concentration plant, and in particular, of the design and construction of the grinding process line is the key for uranium recovery.

Wet grinding plant in in-situ leach plant is used to grind the crushed ore grains by means of steel ball mill for reducing the uranium ore fine enough with the consistency of mud. The ball mill, rod mill is utilised as required by production levels and operate in parallel.
