ROM characterization - USA


Define overall hydrogeological framework to allow design of an in-place leaching program on an large ROM operation


Large scale geophysical reconnaissance and detailed characterization for hydrodynamic parameters. The geophysical evaluation included three-dimensional Electric Resistivity Tomography (ERT) and Seismic Refraction Tomography (SRT)


  • Define overall solution distribution and structure within rock pile
  • Identify leaching targets and potential point of solution discharge
  • Reduced characterization costs
