Title: Mineral Resources Institute and Alabama Mining and Mineral Resources Research Institute annual report of activities, October 1, 1982-September 30, 1983

Abstract

The purpose of the Mineral Resources Institute program is to strengthen education in the mineral and fossil fuel sciences and to stimulate research leading to more effective and efficient utilization of the mineral resources of the state, region, and the nation. In fulfilling this commitment, the Mineral Resources Institute carries out or supports basic and applied research in coal, lignite, oil shale, petroleum, natural gas, metallic ores, and industrial minerals involving chemistry, physics, chemical, metallurgical, mineral, civil engineering, geology, and other specialized disciplines. The Institute consists of a staff of research professionals with backgrounds in geology, mining, metallurgy, mineral processing, and the chemistry and chemical engineering disciplines. The combination of disciplines provides the broad capabilities to conduct programs encompassing geological exploration, mineral resources evaluation, land use, land reclamation, rapid excavation, geochemistry, petrology, hydrology, rock mechanics, mineral processing and extraction, ecology, and health and safety. The research facilities of MRI include laboratories designed for bench scale, fundamental and applied research and development. This report covers significant activities of the Mineral Resources Institute and the Alabama Mining and Mineral Resources Research Institute during the period October 1, 1982 through September 30, 1982.
