Yellow cake
After drying, the concentrates of uranium have the appearance of a bright yellow powder commonly called "yellow cake". The yellow cake contains about 750 kg of uranium per ton, which facilitates the transport from the mine to the conversion plant. The picture shows the "Yellow cake" on a filter strips to the treatment plant of the Society of Mining Jouac (Haute-Vienne) in french Limousin.
