Abstract
Since 1965, the Bureau of Mines has pioneered the use of chemicals alone or in conjunction with vegetation as a means of stabilizing fine mineral wastes. This paper updates available information on continuing long-term field tests on selected uranium and copper mill tailings. Current research tests to improve plant growth on excessively acid tailings by use of leaching or neutralizing are discussed as well as the use of Indian Ricegrass, a native grass, in stabilizing tailings.
