ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF PHOSPHATE MINE TAILINGS IN

Phosphate mining has impacted a significant portion of Florida since it began in 1888, although current operations are concentrated in central and northern Florida. During the strip mining process, the matrix is mixed with water forming a slurry, which then undergoes washing and flotation in order to separate the phosphate from waste.

Issues The Phosphate Risk

Phosphate mining also releases some of the naturally radioactive material found deep in Florida's soils. That's a risk. When reclamation doesn't work or when revegetation takes a long time, plant and animal communities can be lost or greatly reduced.

Phosphate Beneficiation Process

Large scale mining and processing of phosphate is essential for operating at a profit.
