ISR vs Conventional Mining

Conventional mining methods are often constrained by environmental, geological and economic factors that result in ore deposits being undeveloped.

Conventional mining also comes with higher environmental impact, higher costs and longer time frames to production.

 


 

Higher Return on Investment

ISR offers a potentially lower capital expenditure to first cash flow with lower mining costs related to

  • no moving of rock,
  • no development of open pits and tailing dumps,

 and therefore able to develop the resource in a  flexible manner.

 


 

 Why now?

With the downturn in the mining industry, ISR allows a lower cost entry point for junior mining companies to potentially develop resources not amenable to conventional mining due to geology or costs.

 

 

InSitu Recovery (ISR) has substantial benefits over conventional mining in its ability to deliver a lower cost method for mineral extraction in the right geological setting
