Mine waste remediation research.
Abstract Book, U.S. Department of the Interior Conference on the Environment and Safety, April 24-28, 1995. Washington, DC: U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1995 Apr; :1
The U.S. Bureau of Mines has a long and distinguished history of sound economic research activities in response to and in support of environmental problems associated with mine waste and remediation technologies. The mine waste research program at the USBM covers waste materials derived from all phases of the mining cycle, from mining operations to processing of all mineral commodities. In the past several years, the USBM has expanded its mine waste research program into the environmentally safe disposal of coal combustion residues (CCR). This presentation will address the current and proposed USBM mine waste research program in light of the pending restructuring of the agency. It will also explore partnerships that exist within this program.
