SOMAIR Uranium Mine Heap Leach Pad | SRK Consulting

AREVA and its subsidiary, SOMAIR, have a long history of leach pad operation; the current leach pad is constructed over preexisting leach pads from the late 1970s and early 1980s. SRK optimized the design to limit the cut-and-fill earthworks, while still providing pad-drainage slopes for gravity drainage through a solution channel to the ponds.

Heap Leaching Of Low Grade Uranium Ores At Somair

heap leaching of low grade uranium ores at somair. Heap leaching Wikipedia. 2019-8-18 Although heap leaching is a low cost-process, it normally has recovery rates of 60-70. It is normally most profitable with low-grade ores. Higher-grade ores are usually put through more complex milling processes where higher recoveries justify the extra cost.

SOMAIR - Wikipedia

The extraction process was started during the late 1970s and early 1980s, and involved the building of exclusive leach pad processing operations of the extracted uranium ores, apart from open cut mining. Initially, the Artois deposits were extracted by open cut mining up to 60 metres (200 ft) depth with a production rate of 0.30 - 0.35% ore. Lower grade uranium are exploited up to deeper depths of 90 metres (300 ft)), but with lower ore extraction rate of 0.20 - 0.25%.

• Heap leaching is used for low-grade ores. Once the ore is prepared, it is stacked on an impermeable pad and sprayed with a suitable chemical solution (e.g. SOMAÏR, in Niger). • Dynamic leaching is used for high-grade ores. It takes place in a liquid medium in tanks at the facility (e.g. COMINAK, in Niger, and McClean Lake, in Canada).
