Yellow cake

scroll

Yellow cake is the final product of the milling of uranium ore. It contains about 80 % of uranium oxide and is usually represented by the formula U3O8. The yellow cake produced by most modern mills is actually brown or black, not yellow; the name comes from the colour and texture of the concentrates produced by early mining operations due to impurities from ammonium diuranate (NH4)2U2O7.
