Abstract
This U.S. Bureau of Mines (USBM) study examined abandoned mining states within the United States to determine their potential as mining research locations. The deposits discussed are podiform chromite deposits located throughout the United States and hardrock titanium deposits of Virginia. Maps detailing preliminary geophysical traverses are given. This paper also addresses a USBM ongoing project in innovative mining called 'Selective Borehole Slurry Mining.' The method incorporates advantages such as selective ore extraction, reduced capital costs, and removing human workers from hazardous conditions.
