In Situ Leach (ISL) Mining of Uranium

In Situ Leach (ISL) Mining of Uranium (June 2009) z Most uranium mining in the USA and Kazakhstan is now by in situ leach methods, also known as in situ recovery (ISR). z In USA ISL is seen as the most cost effective and environmentally acceptable method of mining, and Australian experience supports this. z Australia's first ISL uranium mine is Beverley, which started operation late in 2000.
