What are In-situ Recovery Copper Projects? INN

In-situ recovery is commonly used to recover copper and uranium. In-situ recovery, or ISR, is an extraction process designed to leave a mine’s physical location undisturbed. It is touted as an...

ISR - In-Situ Copper Recovery

In-Situ Copper Recovery In-situ means “in the natural or original position.” In the simplest terms, in-situ recovery (ISR) involves removing the selected minerals or metals without digging up the host rock. This creates many environmental and economic advantages over conventional extraction.

Excelsior Mining Corp - In-Situ Recovery

What is In-Situ Recovery (ISR)? ISR is an environmentally-friendly process by which copper can be extracted from the ground with minimal disturbance to the surface environment. ISR mining has a long history, starting with uranium mining in the 1960s. Arizona also has a positive track record for ISR permitting. For example, the San Manuel copper mine, owned by BHP Billiton, was a successful operation that integrated ISR

In-situ Copper Recovery in Arizona

In-situ copper recovery is an environmentally responsible way of extracting copper from the ground. A low-pH solution similar in strength to household vinegar slowly dissolves copper in the bedrock. At the same time this solution is being introduced into the copper ore body, it is also being drawn through the ore and extracted. More solution is pumped out than is pumped in, and the deposit is flushed with water after the copper

In-situ Copper Recovery Is a Rare Opportunity for Flore

The PTF is a one to two year demonstration of in-situ copper recovery. This state-of-the-art method requires no open pit, no tunneling, no blasting, no waste dumps, and none of the large equipment typically associated with traditional mining activity. The first copper cathode was produced in April 2019.

What is InSitu Recovery? - Environmental Copper Recovery

What is InSitu Recovery Mining? Metals (Copper, Gold etc) are recovered ‘In Situ’ by firstly dissolving the commodity in place and then extracting them using a system of injection and extraction bores or wells. Most times ISR accelerates what is already happening naturally within the bedrock and water table.

project at San Manuel was environmentally sound (O'Gorman et al., 2004). The capacity of ISR production reached 11,000 t Cu/yr in 1990 (Briggs, 2014). The San Manuel Mine is now closed. In the 1970s and early 1980s an in situ leaching project was carried out to extract copper from oxide ores at Miami, Arizona. This in situ

Project Benefits - Gunnison Copper

In-situ copper recovery does not require an extraction fleet. No tailings piles – In Arizona today, it is common to see large piles of tailings throughout the state. Not only are they unsightly, but the potential for wind to send dust particles in all directions is also a common complaint against extraction projects.
