At the moderators discretion;

I have recently revisited the concept of the goldschmidt process of refining metals and in my searches found the similar process dubbed "the Ames Process" to refine uranium tetrafluoride into pure uranium. Though the process is already successful, the thought came to mind wondering if aluminum could still strip the oxygen off of heavy oxides as well. The primary oxides of interest are uranium oxide (yellowcake) and thorium oxide.
