In situ leach The term 'In situ leach' as it applies to the area of nuclear science can be defined as ' A process using a solution called lixiviant to extract uranium from underground ore bodies in place (in other words, in situ). Lixiviant, which typically contains an oxidant such as oxygen and/or hydrogen peroxide mixed with sodium carbonate or carbon dioxide, is injected through wells into the ore body in a confined aquifer to dissolve the uranium. This solution is then pumped via other wells to the surface for processing. For additional detail, see In Situ Recovery Facilities. '.
