Abstract : An electrolytic method has been investigated for the recovery of uranium and vanadium from the pregnant leach liquors of the Climax Uranium Co. This method, employing anion-permeable membranes, has been found capable of effecting virtually complete recovery of both metals and a fair separation of the two. A recovery of the acid value of the leach liquor is also achievable. The leaching of Climax ore in the anode chamber was investigated and shows some promise.
