IN SITU LEACH URANIUM MINING AND WATER WHAT DO WE KNOW?

This little booklet will provide you with more information about In situ leach mining (ISL).  ISL will only work when a uranium deposit is located in a groundwater aquifer. Basically, water is used as a mining tool.

Wells are drilled into a uranium ore deposit in a grid pattern.  Water mixed with sodium bicarbonate concentrate and oxygen – called “lixiviant” — is pumped down into the deposit and through the uranium ore.  It leaches the uranium and other heavy metals out of the rock, so they can be pumped to the surface of the ground.
