Abstract

When phosphate rock is reduced to elemental phosphorus with coke in the electric furnace process, the uranium in the phosphate rock virtually all goes into the by- product slag. It is estimated that approximately 300 tons of uranium is potentially recoverable per year from this use of phosphate rock.
