potash solution mine process

Potash and Solution Mining YanCoal

Solution mining involves dissolution of the potash with water. Wells are drilled into the potash-bearing area (sylvinite bed) and water, later brine, is pumped down the wells to dissolve the potassium chloride (KCl) (potash product) and sodium chloride (NaCl) (waste salt) that is in the sylvinite bed. Brine is returned to the surface and is ...

Solution Mining Technology - Holle Potash

Solution mining implies the use of solvents (water or weak brine) to dissolve the ore material. The process starts with the drilling of one or several wells down to the target mineable salt horizons and the Injection of the solvent which in turn dissolves the ore and creates a brine that is pumped to surface for processing.

Nov 01, 2016  Potash is typically recovered by primary solution mining, where heated water is injected into a drilled mine cavern to dissolve both KCl and NaCl. KCl is isolated from the returning brine solution with an evaporative crystallizer. Typically, recovered NaCl is stockpiled on the surface and can become an environmental legacy.

Processing of potash ore

The hot leaching method of ore processing is based on the physicochemical properties of NaCl-KCl-H2O system. The main principle of this method is the different temperature-depending degree of solubility of the mineral components – sylvite and halite: the high solubility of potassium chloride from ore by cycling solution at 115°C and the further crystallization of the valuable component on ...
