This volume presents the results of reconnaissance-level investigations of the mill refuse disposal systems for 15 plants throughout the conterminous United States. The sites visited represent a cross section of the copper, iron, lead and zinc, and phosphate industries' practices in the field of fine-grained refuse disposal. The various sites visited were classified according to the different systems and techniques used by the mining industry. The probable effects and relationships between site conditions and disposal methods were determined and evaluated to the extent feasible.
