Abstract Incorporated within this manual are step-by-step procedures on field identification of common rocks and minerals; field sampling techniques; processing of rock and soil samples; and chemical, mineralogical, microbiological, and physical analyses of the samples. The method can be used by mining companies, consultant firms, and State and Federal agencies to insure mining efficiency, post-mining land and water quality, and long range land use. Inherent to these methods is the definition of terms. Many common terms are used inconsistently even within small groups; and when multiple disciplines are involved, communication demands that many terms must be defined for that particular purpose. Thus, the definition of essential rock, soil, chemical, mineralogical, microbiological, and physical terms constitute an important part of this project.( Color illustrations reproduced in black and white)
