[ pour la version française ]                       [ENLARGE THE PHOTO ]

In the jargon of the uranium industry, the chemical solution containing the valuable uranium trioxide is called "OK liquor". Here, inside the Blind River Refinery, a worker rests his hand on a pipe containing OK liquor, where it flows out from the bottom of the huge solvent extraction columns.
