NTIS: PB 241 084 :128 pages
Established in 1910, the Bureau of Mines of the Department of the Interior is the federal government's primary research arm in the minerals and fossil fuels fields. The role of the Bureau of Mines is to develop, through scientific and engineering investigations, technology sufficient to increase the percentage of recovery of oil, coal, natural gas, copper, and other mineral products from the country's deposits; to improve the economics of recycling scrap metals; to achieve more efficient utilization of virgin metals and minerals by extending their normal lifespan; and to find industrial uses for the many wastes of mineral processing that constitute unsightly dumps and contribute to air, water, and land pollution. Research 1974 is the fourth in a series of annual Bureau of Mines publications highlighting significant research projects and mineral intelligence studies.
