The document presents a study to determine the presence and concentrations of the 129 priority pollutants in the ore mining and dressing point source category and the technical data base compiled by EPA with regard to these pollutants and their treatability for regulation under the Clean Water Act. The concentrations of conventional and nonconventional pollutants were also examined for the establishment of effluent limitations guidelines. Treatment technologies were assessed for designation as the best available demonstrated technology (BADT) upon which new source performance standards (NSPS) are based. The document outlines the technology options considered and the rationale for selecting each technology level. These technology levels are the basis for the regulation promulgated December 3, 1982 (47 FR 54598).
