Gearing Up to Control Trace Elements During Mineral Processing.
Min Cong J 1980 Apr; 66(4):18-20
Gearing up to control trace elements during mineral processing involves obtaining all the information available about the operations of the various processors. This Bureau of Mines paper describes the need for precise terms and methodology needed for trace minerals, the environmental impact of polutants not documented, a matrix to identify problems, properties of chemical compounds and how they differ from component elements, and the confusion in assessing the need for environmental controls. The paper also describes why it is important for processors to know about the compounds at each step and how they can add body to existing knowledge.
