The book emphasizes various aspects of processing secondary sources for recovery of uranium. The field of secondary resource processing is gaining ground over the last few years as it is eco-friendly, economical and in tune with the philosophy of sustainable development. The book is the first one of its type in the area and includes a succint and comprehensive description of related areas of ore mineralogy, resource classification, processing principles involved in uranium solubilisation followed by separation and safety aspects. The clear organisation and the carefully selected figures and tables makes the treatment invaluable for practising engineers, research workers and academic institutions.A reference to the Eh-pH diagram for the U-S-H2O system at 25 AdC provides useful guidelines regarding the regions of pH and oxidation potential in which simple uranium oxides, ions in solution and insoluble uranates exist (Fig. 3.2).
