Özet

The applicability of a new leaching method, the HSS (H2O2-Na2SO4-H2SO4) system, in the extraction of uranium from Saricaoglu-Bergama Region low grade ore, and the efficiency of Acigol Lake (Denizli)-Turkey wafer as a natural source of Na2SO4 has been investigated. The effect of H2SO4 concentration, temperature, leaching time, H2O2 and Na2SO4 concentrations and the amount of Acigol Lake water on the extraction of uranium was examined. HSS was found suitable for the extraction of uranium from Saricaoglu-Bergama Region samples and it was observed that the acid consumption could be decreased by adding Na2SO4.
