Tummalapalle Uranium Project
Tummalapalle is part of a large tabular, strata bound and flatly dipping uranium reserve occurring in carbonate host rock in YSR district of Andhra Pradesh. The lodes as well as the parting in between are narrow. A highly mechanised underground mine has been opened up using state of the art technology through three numbers of 9-degree Declines. The central Decline has a belt conveyor meant for transport of ore and the other two are meant for movement of men and machineries. A processing plant based on alkali leaching under controlled temperature and pressure technology has been put under trial run..
