Low environmental impact ISR mining, also called Insitu Leach (ISL) or Solution Mining, uses an alkaline or acid “lixiviant“ solution*, injected & extracted using a series wells to leach subterranean ores.
After the lixiviant is injected, the uranium-bearing solution is pumped to the surface & recovered in a processing plant. Uranium pregnant solution from production wells is pumped or trucked to a treatment plant where uranium is recovered typically using resin/polymer ion exchange (IX) or solvent extraction (SX). Clean water is reinjected.
* Alkaline leach & IX recovery are generally considered to be more environmentally friendly
GTI Energy Ltd (GTI or Company) is pleased to advise that planning for the 2024 field season in Wyoming has progressed well and permitting is on track to facilitate drilling during Q3.
Uranium explorers with assets located in the United States stand poised to benefit enormously from the major supply-demand imbalances in the global uranium market.
GTI Energy Ltd (GTI or Company) is delighted to advise that experienced Denver based ISR uranium
technical and executive leader, Mr Matt Hartmann has joined GTI in the role of President US
Operations, to oversee the Company’s technical and commercial activities in the US.
GTI Energy Ltd (GTI or Company) is pleased to advise that the initial drilling program has been
completed at its 100% owned Lo Herma ISR Uranium Project (Lo Herma), located in Wyoming’s
prolific Powder River Basin (Figures 1 & 2). Twenty-six (26) drillholes were advanced, totalling
4,250m (14,000 ft), with operations finalised on 11 December 2023.
