New Event

We are pleased to announce a focussed 1-day In Situ Recovery (ISR) Symposium to be organised in partnership with CSIRO Minerals. The Symposium will be held Wednesday 23 May, and follows on from the three previous ISR events organised by CSIRO.  ISR has been mainly limited to roll front sandstone type uranium deposits which have suitable permeability. However, developing technology such as fracking has the potential to open the door to the treatment of a wider range of ore deposits and recovery of other metals such as gold and copper.
