The standard of living in the United States and other industrialized nations depends heavily on mineral resources, particularly metals. Per capita consumption of metals is high, and it increases each year. The growth rate is most rapid in those countries that are just beginning to industrialize, which means greater competition for mineral resources than ever before. Therefore, it is imperative to conserve these resources by the most efficient use possible. This paper discusses some of the new mineral-processing technologies investigated by the Bureau of Mines in this vital mission.
