The primary objective of the program was to provide EPA with detailed information concerning the generation, treatment, and disposal of potentially hazardous wastes in the metals mining and concentrating industries. The metals mining and concentrating industries covered in this study were categorized by the following Bureau of the Census Standard Industrial Classification Numbers: 1021 - Copper Ores; 1031 - Lead-Zinc Ores; 1092 - Mercury Ores; 1094 - Uranium, Radium and Vanadium Ores; and 1099 - Metal Ores--not elsewhere classified - antimony, beryllium, platinum, rare earths, tin, titanium, and zirconium. Waste disposal and treatment practices are discussed, and estimates are given for the cost of hazardous waste treatment and disposal at typical facilities.
