Aug 01, 1996 In the mid 1980s a new area in trona mining emerged and the FMC Corporation brought onstream additional soda ash capacity through the use of solution mining. Although the concept was not new, its application to trona was [2]. The end result of the application of solution mining was a reduction in trona mining costs [3-5].

Room and pillar mining means that some trona is removed, creating a “room”, and some trona is left behind to form the “pillar” that supports the mine’s tunnels. Longwall mining is done with a 750-foot long machine that removes 100 percent of the ore in its path, making it more efficient than room and pillar mining.

Solution Mining

SMRI views solution mining as mining of underground, water-soluble minerals, usually using one or more drilled wells to dissolve the minerals with water (not by using acids used in metal ore leaching). Minerals such as salt, potash, trona, and magnesium salts may be produced by pumping saturated fluid from underground caverns.
