Title:APPROPRIATENESS OF THE EP/TCLP SIMULATION OF CO-DISPOSAL SITUATION FOR MINING WASTES; CHARACTERISTIC TESTS FOR DETERMINING THE HAZARDOUS CHARACTERISTICS OF MINING WASTES
RCRA Online Number:12475
Date:10/03/1985
To:Robbins
From:Williams
Organization of Recipient:ASARCO Inc.
Description: There is no determination on the appropriate tests used to identify mining or Bevill exempt mining and mineral processing wastes to be regulated as hazardous waste. TCLP is designed to simulate the leachability of industrial waste that is co-disposed with sanitary waste. Although the disposal scenario may be incompatible with mining waste disposal, similar generation of acids warrants TCLP or stronger. Mining wastes generate acidic leachate upon exposure to air.
