In-situ copper leaching is a proven technology

In-situ copper leaching is a proven technology

A Letter to the Editor was recently published in The Northern Miner about in-situ leaching:

“It was recently reported in the Financial Post that in-situ leaching of copper is an ‘unproven technology’. But after personally spending five years working at the in-situ copper leaching operation at San Manuel, Arizona, I can state that it has definitely been proven.”


Florence Copper is proposing to build and operate an in-situ copper recovery facility in Florence, Arizona. This process will have a very small environmental footprint and is possible because of a very rare copper deposit.
