In situ leach (ISL) technology is an innovative and recently utilised mining alternative. It is recognized as having economic and environmental advantages when properly employed by knowledgeable specialists to extract uranium from suitable sandstone type deposits. This report brings together information from several technical disciplines that are an essential part of ISL technology. It provides insights into many of the considerations related to the technical feasibility of planning, operating and closing ISL uranium mining projects. Much of the material may also be of value for planning or operating alkaline ISL projects.
