Abstract
The Bureau of Mines, through a contractor, conducted a 4-month investigation of Tennessee phosphate resources for entry into the Minerals Availability System (MAS). Literature was reviewed, topographic and geologic maps were procured, and key personnel in county, state, and federal offices were interviewed. Personal contact was made with the managers of each of the companies involved in Tennessee phosphate mining and beneficiation. Historical data, resource and reserve estimates, along with production and cost estimates were prepared for four operating deposits and two inactive deposits. The information was encoded into the mas format and each deposit file was accompanied by an explanatory summary file report.This report summarizes the study of the individual deposits and is directed toward an overall review of the central Tennessee phosphorus industry.
