Abstract
This report describes the current methods of design, construction, and development of wells for in situ leaching of uranium. The discussion includes the alternatives for well design drilling equipment and fluids, grout formulation and emplacement, well integrity testing and repair, and well development and stimulation. Current practice in these areas was determined through interviews and discussions with eight operators of commercial-scale in situ facilities. Based on this information and previous experience, recommendations are made regarding well design, construction, and development for in situ leaching.
