Microbial Leaching Of Uranium Ore

The biodissolution of uranium is a consequence of hydrometallurgical treatment of ore with microbial intervention. Uranium bioleaching is mainly driven by the combined action of Fe(III) and the protons that are produced by the activity of chemolithotrophic micro-organisms which use either iron or sulfur as their energy source for their growth.

A Comparison Of The Uranium Recovery From Low

A Comparison Of The Uranium Recovery From Low

Uranium can be released from sulfide minerals by direct and indirect bioleaching (Bosecker, 1997). In direct bioleaching, there is physical contact between the bacterial cell and the mineral sulfide surface. In indirect mechanism, the microorganisms need not be in direct contact with ore surface. In bacterial leaching of uranium ores, the
