The report describes source reduction and recycling practices and innovative techniques for waste management currently used in mining. EPA's intent is the identification of these practices and the fostering of technology and information transfer throughout the mining industry. Source reduction can include process control to produce a purer product while reducing hazardous constituents in the waste stream and production of a new saleable product while reducing hazardous constituents in the waste stream. Recycling opportunities unique to mining are slag reprocessing, tailings reprocessing, pipe recycling/reuse, and recycling mine tires. The other practices section addresses topics of a more general nature and includes a description of best management practices for water management and the facility pollution prevention plan prepared by the cyprus baghdad mine. To assist with technical questions and issues, a list of technical contacts familiar with each technology is provided.
