Hi Group:


As an addition to my previous notes on recovery of uranium from ash, the
following is an article about the potential for commercial recovery of
uranium from ash in China.






Based on the following Oak Ridge article, the cumulative "releases" are not
identified as aerosols or ash, but lumped altogether in a simplified mass




The EIA states that 1,128,836,000 short tons coal were used in the USA in
2007.  Assuming 1.3 ppm average U concentration, this amounts to about 1600
metric Tonnes U.
