I would like to recover Barium, Scandium, Strontium, Lanthanum, Yttrium, Vanadium from the same ore heap. Please advise on the best process, or help with flowsheet diagrams and materials.

Thanks

You are generally looking at a multi-stage process.  The first, and easiest, is using trommels, crushers, clasiufying scrubbers and flotation to concentrate the desired minerals.  This is followed by several stages of hydro-metallurgical processes to separate and purify the components.
