The Bureau of Mines is responsible for a broad spectrum of programs for meeting the diverse and changing mineral resource needs of the nation. Bureau program activities are classified into two major functions: (1) developing new and improved technology that will make the production and processing of minerals more efficient, safer and more healthful for mineral workers and the public, and more compatible with a quality environment. (2) Acquiring statistical and economic knowledge related to mineral materials, their availability, production, and use, and performing mineral problem and policy analysis. Research 81, the 11th annual summary of significant results in mineral technology and economics, reflects the scope of the Bureau's mission, and the success with which that mission is being pursued.
