Abstract
A 12-month investigation of Florida phosphate resources for entry into the Minerals Availability system (MAS) was conducted. Data were collected from known literature, mineral interests now developing or producing phosphate rock, large landholders, and governmental agencies on a regional, deposit summary, or individual prospect hole data base. Operating and capital cost estimates assignable in the MAS to operating or projected "C" deposits were prepared by modeling six case mines, based on nominal ranges of size, age, and quality of ore. These cases provided the basis for development of a computer program to project costs for "R" deposits (other identified deposits). These cost, environmental, geographic, and other relevant data were encoded into the MAS format, as well as probabilistic grade-resource quantification. In addition, a summary deposit file report was written for each of the 103 "C" and "R" deposits identified in the study. This report represents a compilation of the deposit information gathered and presented with descriptive historic or technical background data.
