Mining Wastes

Since the most recent discussion topic seems to be mining wastes, I
thought I'd refer you to a publication that is certainly one of the
best I've read on this subject. Worldwatch Paper 109, Mining the
Earth, by John Young, lays out and discusses the issues surrounding
the extraction of virgin materials very well. You can contact the
Worldwatch Institute at 1776 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington, DC,
20036. I hope it's still in print and that there are copies left;
it's certainly worth having in your library. ( John: if you're
reading this, you done good!!)
