Uranyl nitrate solution refining by ion-exchangers and solvent extraction with tri-n-butyl phosphate in kerosene, obtaining a pure UNH solution, precipitate with ammonia, obtaining of the yellowcake, drying and calcining the yellowcake to oxide U3O8; to obtain the pure metal (an option): reducing of U3O8 to UO2, preparation of UCl4, reducing of the tetrachloride with potassium, etc.
