Abstract:
Due to cooperation between private companies and public interests, phosphate mining wastes, or tailings, are having less of a negative impact on the environment in North Carolina. Legislation to protect streams and rivers from pollution was enacted in 1964 and the Minerals Research Laboratory of North Carolina in Asheville has been offering its assistance to mining companies since 1946. As a result, substantial contributions have been made towards conserving and enhancing the overall value of North Carolina's natural environment and its mineral resources.
