Reclamation of Mineral Milling Wastes.
Presented At AIME Annual Mtg San Francisco California 1972 Feb; :8 pages
To assist in the reduction of environmental degradation resulting from milling operations, the Bureau of Mines has developed, and successfully demonstrated, chemical, vegetative, and combined chemical-vegetative procedures for stabilizing milling wastes under varying environmental conditions. Costs of achieving reclamation using these stabilization procedures are compared with those of other physical and vegetative approaches. The Bureau's chemical- vegetative procedure for establishing vegetation directly on fine- sized wastes compares favorably with other stabilization processes that have been used.
