The report responds to public comments relevant to land storage of secondary materials, including criteria for high volumes of Bevill-exempt mining and mineral processing wastes, containment units (tanks, containers, buildings, and approved pads), and class of materials outside of RCRA jurisdiction. It examines restriction on using non-Bevill materials as alternative feedstocks and high-risk mining wastes excluded by the Bevill Amendment. It also addresses comments on damage cases and environmental releases, characterization of mineral processing wastes, cost of remediation, risk posed by Bevill mining wastes, and other comments on materials supporting the proposed rule. It discusses comments on the mineral processing impact analysis and proposed criteria for clarifying Bevill status waste.
