Abstract
A literature search and a survey were prepared on the technology of surface hydraulic mining with particular reference to its possible use in the United States for stripping overburden from surface coal mines. Extensive use was made of Russian references that were translated into English. The advantages and disadvantages of hydraulic mining and hydrotransport are identified as well as criteria for selecting potential applications. At present, the major U.S. application is in the phosphate industry of Florida and North Carolina. Potential locations for hydraulic stripping of overburden from coal seams are identified in Alaska, Illinois, Montana, Washington, and Wyoming. Other potential applications include the hydraulic mining of peat in Minnesota, and the stripping of overburden from lignite in Texas, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Volume 2 comprises the appendixes.
