This publication helps to raise awareness of the presence of uranium in ore deposits that are not commonly thought of as containing uranium and highlights potential additional sources of uranium. It provides insights into potential legacy mine waste issues for such deposits if the uranium is not extracted. The publication also presents various mining and processing approaches, supported by case studies of each deposit type. The appendix to this publication includes a detailed deposit classification of uranium deposits and their global distribution, and shows for comparison purposes the equivalent distribution of other deposit types not traditionally considered as uranium deposits (but nevertheless with uranium extraction potential).
