Mining Minute: In Situ Recovery

December 30, 2021

In situ recovery (ISR) is a mining method whereby the ore is left in the ground, and minerals are recovered from it by dissolving them and pumping the mineral-laden solution to the surface. This results in minimal surface disturbance and no tailings or waste rock.
