Solution mining - QueensMineDesignWiki

In-situ recovery involves a series of horizontal parallel wells that injects a solution into an orebody, while a neighboring well extracts the pregnant solution back to the surface. To detect if mining fluids are flowing outside of the mining area, monitoring wells are drilled around the saturation zone.

In situ leach - Wikipedia

In-situ leaching (ISL), also called in-situ recovery (ISR) or solution mining, is a mining process used to recover minerals such as copper and uranium through boreholes drilled into a deposit, in situ.In situ leach works by artificially dissolving minerals occurring naturally in a solid state. For recovery of material occurring naturally in solution, see: Brine mining.

In situ and induced stresses - Rocscience Inc.

Measurements of horizontal stresses at civil and mining sites around the world show that the ratio k tends to be high at shallow depth and that it decreases at depth (Brown and Hoek, 1978, Herget, 1988). In order to understand the reason for these horizontal stress variations it is necessary to consider the problem on a much larger scale than that
