ANSTO Minerals will be presenting in the In Situ Recovery (ISR) Symposium, Uranium-REE-Lithium session and Lithium Processing Forum.
Dr James Quinn will outline results obtained using a newly released, high capacity strong base anion exchange (SBA) resin for the recovery of uranium from saline leach liquors. ANSTO Minerals’ understanding of the function of this resin, allowed the design and construction of a pilot plant at ANSTO, which was transported to BOSS Resources’ Honeymoon mine site in South Australia where it was operated successfully for 10 weeks.
