Abstract: With the development of nuclear power station, the requirement for uranium resources assumes an uptrend. In situ leaching technology is a kind of advanced uranium mining technology. Compared with traditional uranium mining methods, the in-situ leaching uranium method is less harmful to environment, but the effect of in-situ leaching on the atmosphere, soil, surface water, especially groundwater cannot be ignored. In this paper, on the basis of analyzing the pollution sources, measures to protect the environment are brought forward, which can help us to minimize the pollution of the in-situ leaching technology.

Keywords: In-situ leaching of uranium; environment pollution; environment protection
