Description: A description of the new Weldon Spring Feed Preparation and Sampling Plant for uranium concentrates is given. Prior to the startup of this plant the auger to be later installed was used in an evaluation program to test reliability for representative sampling and uniformity both within drums and between drums of various concentrates. Results of this program were used as a reference for the sampling plant evaluation which involved successive auger and mechanical sampling of a series of lots of several concentrates, followed by moisture determinations, uranium assays, and statistical analyses of the data. From the final results conclusions are drawn concerning the suitability of the mechanical sampling system for the concentrates examined.
