The uranium in the Sponsor's Ore was proven amenable to the standard hydrometallurgical processes-- the acid leach and the carbonate leach. From an economical standpoint, the results of the heap-leaching and flotation studies were not favorable because of low recoveries. The possibility of employing an emulsion-induced selective flocculation flotation procedure still exists.
