An Environmental Critique of In Situ Leach Mining

come. With a depressed world uranium market, the mining industry has been seeking to cut costs in order to make projects more economically viable. One such method of achieving this is a mining process known as In Situ Leaching (ISL) or Solution Mining. It involves pumping chemicals into the ground to dissolve the uranium mineral "in situ"

Learn About the Heap Leaching Process & Mining Techniques

Heap leach mining is an industrial hydrometallurgical process, where the metal contained in an ore body is extracted by dissolution. The target mineral is leached with an aqueous solution whereby the mineral is dissolved into what is called a "pregnant" solution which, is then captured and later recovered downstream in the processing line.
