Fact sheet: uranium mining and milling

When the uranium is deep below ground, it is sometimes extracted using in-situ leaching (solution mining). This involves pumping acidic water into the ore to dissolve the uranium, and pumping the uranium-rich water back to the surface. Milling is a process to separate the uranium from the other metals and minerals in
