copper smelting and refining facilities produce 2.5 million metric tons mt of smelter slag and 1.5 million mt of slag tailings per year. this is a large volume of slag however it is very small compared to comparable waste volumes from mining and crushing operations.
the rocks of that unit are this work was prompted by the actual need to map the known to host mineralizations of cr pt ni and fe and various concentration of asbestos minerals in abandoned asbestos or phases such as asbestos minerals and talc. iron is mostly hosted asbestos containing open mines with dumps and tailings possi in magnetite
the asbestos tailings sample mainly contained serpentine and a small amount of dolomite brucite and magnetite. the prefired material mainly contained forsterite and a small amount of periclase hematite and calcium oxide.
