What is Jet Mining?

Jet Mining is sometimes referred to hydraulic borehole mining (“HBHM”), borehole mining (“BHM”), jet boring, underground hydraulic mining, subsurface hydraulic mining, insitu mining, borehole tin mining, jet reaming, water jet borehole mining or water jet mining.  In all cases it refers to using high-pressure water or fluid to disaggregate subsurface material and concurrently using either airlift or venturi pumps to lift the disaggregated material back to surface.
