Abu Rusheid area is located at the Southern Eastern Desert of Egypt and composed of Mylonitic gneiss rocks (mineralized rock), Serpentinite rocks, Ophiolitic metagabbro, Ophiolitic mélange, Monzogranites, post- granitic dykes (lamprophyre and dolerite), veins and recent alluvial deposits. This paper is concerned with the study of potentiality of sulphuric and caro's acid in uranium dissolution from Abu Rusheid mineralized rocks. For this purpose, many batch dissolution experiments were
