In-situ leaching
« on: Nov 28, 2005, 11:11 »
Extracting metals or other minerals from ore by allowing an acid-containing liquid to flow through the ground that contains the minerals. The minerals are dissolved by the acid (leached) and captured when the liquid is collected. Leaching is also used to recover minerals from waste rock that contains too low a concentration of the mineral to be worth recovering by typical extraction (mining and processing) methods.
