Uranium mining in Australia - Wikipedia

The occurrence of uranium in Australia had been known since the 1890s. Uranium was produced as a bi-product of radium mining in South Australia at Radium Hill from 1906 and Mount Painter from 1911. A refinery at Hunter's Hill, Sydney processed the ore between 1911 and 1915 for radium bromide and uranium. The radium was used for medical research and the uranium used in ceramic and glass manufacture.

Uranium Geoscience Australia

Uranium is extracted by means of an acid or alkaline solution which is pumped down injection wells into the permeable mineralised zone to remobilise uranium from the ore body. Then the uranium-bearing solution is pumped to the surface and recovered in a processing plant.
