Abstract : An investigation of the "poisoned" Compound A and Amberlite IRA-400 in use at Western Reefs, South Africa indicates that silica is the principal cause of the sudden losses of uranium capacity. Regeneration with sodium sulfide has restored relatively new Compound A and IRA-400 to their original capacities but old IRA-400 has only 75 per cent of its original capacity after this treatment. Periodic alkaline regeneration to remove accumulated silica is recommended. jg p.3
