Peninsula is trialling low-pH-based lixiviant instead of alkaline-based chemistry to leach uranium from ore at its Lance Uranium Projects.

During the September 2018 quarter, the uranium producer reduced its inventory and spent less on production expenditures as it underwent the transition.

Heili said in a quarterly presentation that the Lance project had a solid quarter in respect to Peninsula’s production objectives.

He said: “We recorded over 40,000 pounds of produced uranium from the Lance projects during the quarter which topped the high end of our production guidance.

“Our toll-milling service provider dried and drummed over 30,000 pounds of yellowcake during the quarter.”
