That is, the form and distribution parameters of the microstructure directly influence the diffusion and penetration of the leaching solution in rare earth orebodies. Therefore, research on the chemical replacement process of the leaching solution and the characteristics of orebody microstructures is beneficial for furthering the analysis of the leaching infiltration mechanisms and is of great significance to green extraction and effective recovery of ion-type rare earth ores.
