MRIWA research project M0488 led by Dr Laura Kuhar at CSIRO delivers new understanding of the chemical extraction of copper from buried ore deposits.

By reducing surface disruption, in-situ recovery could reduce both the cost of mining and its impact on the landscape, prolonging operation of existing mines or supporting development of deposits too deep for conventional mining technology.
