Spanish term or phrase:ley
I am unsure as to the meaning of 'ley' (definitely not 'law') in the mining document I am working on, in sentences such as:
"Revisión de procedimientos relacionados con el tratamiento de altas LEYES (corte, búsqueda restringida,
or "Análisis de decaimiento de LEY realizado sobre sondajes de circulación reversa."
"Estimación de LEYES" (section heading).
A previous kudos question about the apparently-related mining term, "ley de cabeza", received the answer "head grade" OR "mining grade." another entry states that 'ley' refers to degree of purity of an alloy ("fineness")
I would be grateful for guidance on this tricky one for me!
