    1. 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 ARD
