This paper presents a new method of recovering uranium ores from the earth. By sinking drill holes into ore bearing beds, aqueous leach solutions can be circulated through the ores. Solutions of sulfuric acid, potassium carbonate and many other available reagents will put the ions of uranium and vanadium into the liquid leach. The pregnant solutions are then pumped to the surface so a recovery of the valuable portion of the ore can be made.
