This report provides a systematic method for assessing the commercial feasibility of applying true in situ copper mining at a selected site. Procedures and algorithms are provided for developing design specifications and costs for well fields and a surface processing facility, and then conducting a discounted-cash- flow-rate-of-return cash flow analysis. This report also describes the environmental requirements to permit an in situ copper mining operation in Arizona, including procedures and monitoring and restoration requirements and costs. Also included are descriptions of tests to obtain site-specific input data that are required to conduct a commercial design.
