Since mining often includes the extraction of metals and other resources deep under the surface, it can lead to serious erosions. These erosions may in turn lead to a state where the eroded land is no longer suitable for human use like housing or farming since the soil is too unstable and poses too many dangers of further erosion.

In-situ leaching recovery of copper: what’s next

Solution mining is conveniently divided into three main categories: heap leaching, dump leaching, and in situ leaching. In situ leaching (ISL) involves the application of a specific lixiviant to dissolve en masse minerals within the confines of a deposit or in very close proximity to its original geologic setting.
