Uranium - New World Encyclopedia

Uranium ore is mined in several ways: by open pit, underground or by leaching uranium from low-grade ores (see uranium mining). Uranium ore typically contains 0.1 to 0.25 percent of actual uranium oxides so extensive measures must be employed to extract the metal from its ore. Uranium ore is crushed and rendered into a fine powder and then leached with either an acid or alkali.

Uranium - Wikipedia

Uranium is a chemical element with symbol U and atomic number 92. It is a silvery-grey metal in the actinide series of the periodic table.A uranium atom has 92 protons and 92 electrons, of which 6 are valence electrons.Uranium is weakly radioactive because all isotopes of uranium are unstable, with half-lives varying between 159,200 years and 4.5 billion years.

Uranium Mining Overview - World Nuclear Association

Uranium Mining In the last fifty years uranium has become one of the world's most important energy minerals. It is used almost entirely for making electricity, though a small proportion is used for the important task of producing medical isotopes.

Depleted uranium - Wikipedia

History. Enriched uranium was first manufactured in the early 1940s when the United States and Britain began their nuclear weapons programs. Later in the decade, France and the Soviet Union began their nuclear weapons and nuclear power programs. Depleted uranium was originally stored as an unusable waste product (uranium hexafluoride) in the hope that improved enrichment processes could ...

Iron processing - The metal | Britannicam

Iron processing - The metal: Most blast furnaces are linked to a basic oxygen steel plant, for which the hot metal typically contains 4 to 4.5 percent carbon, 0.6 to 0.8 percent silicon, 0.03 percent sulfur, 0.7 to 0.8 percent manganese, and 0.15 percent phosphorus. Tapping temperatures are in the range 1,400° to 1,500° C (2,550° to 2,700° F); to save energy, the hot metal is transferred ...
