Mr Boom

In general, I agree with you.  However, this case is not a good example of
such.  "Yellowcake" is the very definition of *refined* and *processed*
ore.  That is, it's ore-concentrate, the rest of the ore stays at the mill,
as "tailings".

It's sometimes difficult to determine which part of the rules apply to what.

§ 40.13 Unimportant quantities of source material.
(b) Any person is exempt from the regulations in this part and from the
requirements for a license set forth in section 62 of the act to the extent
that such person receives, possesses, uses, or transfers unrefined and
unprocessed ore containing source material; provided, that, except as
authorized in a specific license, such person shall not refine or process
such ore.
