ISR Uranium and Copper

The in-situ recovery (ISR) industry is unique in that a specific combination of expertise in fluid flow, petroleum engineering, and hydrology is needed for the diverse nature of the operations. We are knowledgeable regarding all federal and state regulatory requirements related to groundwater flow at ISR projects. Petrotek currently provides consulting services to all of the major uranium operators in the U.S. with production or production visibility, as well as a number of companies in the advanced and junior exploration stages. Petrotek staff have also provided technical support related to uranium ISR and mining reclamation projects across the globe, including locations in Australia, Canada, Kazakhstan, Paraguay, South Africa, and Turkey.
