Abstract
The U.S. Bureau of Mines, conducted a comprehensive sampling program of 10 upland disposal sites along the Alabama, Black Warrior, and Tombigbee River systems in Alabama. Samples from each site were characterized according to particle size, chemical analysis, mineralogical content, and potential end use. Additionally, samples were subjected to the Toxic Characteristic Leachate Procedure (TCLP) to determine the presence of potentially harmful heavy metals. Based on the results of these studies, each sample was determined to have the properties amenable for use as aggregate in general purpose portland cement concretes and certain asphalt concrete applications.
