What is “In Situ” Mining? Black Hills Clean Water Alliance

In situ leach mining (ISL) is a method of uranium mining where hundreds of wells are drilled in a “grid pattern” over an ore body that is located in a groundwater aquifer. Water mixed with sodium bicarbonate concentrate is pumped down into the aquifer, across the uranium ore bed, and them up

In Situ Leaching Microbial Mining

In situ leaching is the process of performing leaching inside the mine itself and is usually done inside abandoned or disused mines. When mines are made, there must be a support structure left behind to stop cave-ins. In some mines this is sometimes done by leaving pillars of stone standing, these pillars containing metal ores.

Solution (in situ leach) mining of uranium: an overview

In-situ solution mining and processing have many advantages over conventional uranium mining-and-milling methods. There is, however, a significant potential for ground-water contamination, but it can be minimized by successful restoration of the mined aquifer, limiting leachate excursions, and control of leakage from waste storage ponds.

In-situ recovery—a move towards 'keyhole mining'

In-situ recovery (ISR, also referred to as in-situ leaching or solution mining) may offer such a step-change approach. ISR refers to the recovery of valuable metals from ore deposits by the circulation of a fluid underground and the recovery of the valuable metal from the fluid at the surface for further processing.

Factors influencing in-situ leaching of uranium mining in

The Shihongtan uranium deposit in northwest China is a sandstone-type deposit suitable for alkaline in-situ leaching exploitation of uranium. Alkaline leaching tends to result in CaCO3 precipitation there by affecting the porosity of the ore-bearing aquifer. CaCO3 deposits can also block pumping and injection holes if the formulation parameters of the leaching solution are not well controlled.
