Definition A solution containing solubilized metal ions. Origin • Caused by leaching. The metal bearing solution is then called leachate. o Applied leaching  Pregnant leach solution (PLS) – leachate from applied leaching operations intended for subsequent metal recovery  Bleed from metal production processes – a solution taken from a closed process stream in order to remove unwanted metal ions that otherwise would build up to high levels o ARD  Natural  Anthropogenic • Not caused by leaching o Industrial effluents and by-products
