Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


During the past decade, solution mining of trona has emerged as a viable alternative to conventional mining technology applications. Economics of trona solution mining was investigated for Turkish trona deposit to offer comparative estimates of this method and conventional mining techniques. This study presents the results of an in-depth analysis of in situ trona production costs by employing a process engineering approach. The cost model developed under this effort has been applied to typical solution mining situation encountered in Beypazari. The method considered here is alkali extraction method. -from Authors
