Mining - Solution mining | Britannica

Mining - Mining - Solution mining: Natural brine wells are the source of a large percentage of the world’s bromine, lithium, and boron and lesser amounts of potash, trona (sodium carbonate), Glauber’s salt (sodium sulfate), and magnesium. In addition, artificial brines are produced by dissolving formations containing soluble minerals such as halite (rock salt; sodium chloride), potash ...

Solution mining - QueensMineDesignWiki

Potash and Salt Mining. Solution mining can be applied to water-soluble salts (most notably potash and halite). This process entails drilling and pumping water to the deposit while pumping the resultant impregnated brine solution back to surface 11. Once the brine solution is brought to surface, evaporation is used to eliminate the water and allow for the salt to precipitate out and be treated ...
