After mining, uranium ore is transported to a nearby mill for processing. The first step is to crush the ore and mix it with water so that it can move through a series of mill circuits. After crushing, the ore is treated with acid in large tanks, to separate the uranium from other minerals in the rock.
The uranium mining sector is a relatively minor area of the global mining industry, with a global value of about US$7.28 billion (i.e. 68,848 t U 3 O 8 in 2012 valued at ~ US$105.8/kg U 3 O 8, or ~ US$56.3/lb U 3 O 8 data from BREE, 2013, WNA, 2013) compared to coal and iron ore which are of the order of US$100s of billions globally.

As a result, in 1943 the Government of Canada expropriated the assets of Eldorado and formed a federal crown corporation, Eldorado Mining and Refining Limited, to oversee Canadian uranium assets. Exploration for uranium was restricted to Eldorado and the Geological Survey of Canada.   
The Peruvian company Macusani Yellowcake reported that they have discovered resources equivalent to 2.5 million tons of highgrade lithium and significant amounts of uranium during the exploration of the Falchani deposit in the south of the country.

How is Uranium Produced. Before uranium can be used as a fuel in a nuclear reactor it must be mined and processed. Uranium ore is extracted from the ground using common openpit or sophistied underground mining techniques. Once the ore is excavated, the uranium is extracted or separated from the rock using a chemical process.

A red flag came up early on, when the company making the announcement turned out to be a Canadian Uranium mining company, Macusani Yellowcake, and the alleged Lithium find just happened to be at the site of a Uranium deposit it long had the title for, but was unable to extract, because Peru's legislation does not allow Uranium mining.
