As an environmentally compliant hydrometallurgical process, in situ leaching is extensively used by the mining industry to recover rare earth from weathered crust elution-deposited rare earth ore. In the in situ leaching system, the pore structure plays a dominant role in the permeability of the rare earth orebody and is one of the most important factors that influence the leaching performance.
