Since Minnesota is the major domestic supplier of iron ore, and therefore a major waste producer in the minerals industry, it was natural for the Bureau to initiate a waste stabilization-reclamation program on the Mesabi Iron Range of northeastern Minnesota. Developing a permanent vegetative ground cover stabilization technique for coarse taconite tailings is the subject of this paper.
