Evaluation of the phosphate deposits of Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina using the Minerals Availability System.
Pittsburgh, PA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, OFR 14-79, 1978 jan; :1-65
The Bureau of Mines, through a contractor, conducted a 9-month investigation of phosphate deposits occurring in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina for entry into the Minerals Availability System (MAS). Data were collected from known literature, mineral interests previously prospected in the region, and governmental agencies on a regional, deposit summary, or individual prospect hole data base. Operating and capital costs assignable in the mass to operating or projected deposits were prepared in detail. These costs, environmental, geographic, and other relevant data were encoded into the MAS format, as well as probabilistic-grade resource quantification. In addition, a summary deposit file report was written for each of the six deposits identified in the study. This report represents a compilation of the deposit information gathered and presented with pertinent technical background data.
