A Study Of The Settlement Of Slimes, William Simpson Hall, James Crawford Compton Jan 1909

A Study Of The Settlement Of Slimes, William Simpson Hall, James Crawford Compton

Bachelors Theses

"The purpose of this thesis, as originally planned, was to determine the effect produced by certain substances called electrolytes upon the mill product known as "slimes". The subject presented an ever increasing number of new problems as it progressed and some work along the line of several of these branches is embodied in the following pages. Reports of investigation and behavior of slimes when treated for quick settlement are few and unsatisfactory. Our results may prove nothing already unknown, but the fact that so little data is easily accesible sic has been the motive for this thesis"--Preface, page 1.

A Comparison Of The Solvents Used In The Hydrometallurgy Of Silver, Simon Jochamowitz, Enrique Cavazos Jan 1909

A Comparison Of The Solvents Used In The Hydrometallurgy Of Silver, Simon Jochamowitz, Enrique Cavazos

Bachelors Theses

"Potassium cyanide solutions, hyposulphite of soda solutions, and a mixture called the Russell solution, are the solvents most used to win silver from its ores. We are not the first to attempt comparisons of the solvent powers of the different solutions named. It is difficult, at least we have found it difficult, to find tabulated, a comparison of the various solvents from the points of view of speed of action, of consumption of reagents, of suitability of one or another to a given type of ore"--page 1.

The Volatilization And Absorption Of Silver Chloride, Edgar Joseph Wolf, Victoriano Elicano Jan 1909

The Volatilization And Absorption Of Silver Chloride, Edgar Joseph Wolf, Victoriano Elicano

Bachelors Theses

"The purpose of this thesis was to study the relation of the loss of silver chloride to such variables as the temperature, as the type of gangue, as the method of carrying on the roast; to determine what becomes of the silver lost and to attempt to recover it. In our work we consider something seemingly overlooked by many, if not all of the workers; namely, that there is a great loss of silver chloride due to absorption, as well as to volatilization. Volatilization has been the hobby of most of the experimeters. We hope to show as a part ...


A Study Of The Losses Of Gold During Cupellation In The Presence Of Tellurium, George Albert Easley, Carl Winthrop Keniston Jan 1909

A Study Of The Losses Of Gold During Cupellation In The Presence Of Tellurium, George Albert Easley, Carl Winthrop Keniston

Bachelors Theses

"It is generally accepted that the presence, in the lead button, of a small amount of tellurium causes, during cupellation, a loss of gold. Little, however, is known as to the loss, when tellurium is present, due to variation in the temperature of cupellation...Our work was carried on with the intention of determining the loss of gold, due to temperature in the presence of known amount of tellurium and to compare this loss with that caused by the temperature alone. Has temperature the same, a greater, or a less effect on the loss of gold during cupellation when tellurium ...


The Microstructure Of Drill Steel, Arthur L. Pollard Jan 1909

The Microstructure Of Drill Steel, Arthur L. Pollard

Bachelors Theses

"The object of this thesis was to determine the microstructure of the various grades of steel used in rock drilling and to obtain if possible some general relation between the structure, composition, and hardening temperature. About 35 of the best known grades of tool steel having a carbon content of about 1 per cent or containing an equivalent hardening agent"--page 2.


Minerals And Their Environment Of Formation, Deforrest Don Jan 1909

Minerals And Their Environment Of Formation, Deforrest Don

Bachelors Theses

"The history of mineralogy began with the development of mining and the use of certain minerals as useful products, such as lime, pigments and precious stones. In order to know how to distinguish these minerals when found and where they were likely to found, it was necessary to study the nature, properties and the modes of occurrence. In order to determine all these properties, it was necessary to classify and compare them with the purpose of ascertaining how they resemble each other, and how they differ"--page 1.


Radiation Losses In Metallurgical Furnaces, Frank Richard Loveridge Jan 1909

Radiation Losses In Metallurgical Furnaces, Frank Richard Loveridge

Bachelors Theses

"The conduction and radiation of heat are of great importance in metallurgy. Metallurgical operations require, in the great majority of cases, temperatures above those of normal atmospheric conditions. Loss of heat is loss of dollars. Furnaces of all kinds allow to pass their walls a greater or less amount of heat, i.e. heat is lost by conduction and by radiation. This heat is often spoken of as radiation loss. It is due to the heat being conducted from the inside to the outside of the furnace. The materials of construction, and manner of building the furnace has much to ...


Design And Details Of Elevated Steel Tank, William A. Baueris Jan 1909

Design And Details Of Elevated Steel Tank, William A. Baueris

Bachelors Theses

"An effort has been made in this work to furnish complete plans and specifications for a steel structure which could replace the concrete reservoir on natural elevation north of Rolla, attention being given to capacity and relative elevations. A comparison of these two structures regarding relative advantages and disadvantages is herein given, with the intention of providing some foundation as a source of choice between these two classes of structures"--page 2.

A Method Of Obtaining Lead Concentrates From The Slimes Of The St. Joseph Lead Mill, Lewis Alfred Delano Jan 1909

A Method Of Obtaining Lead Concentrates From The Slimes Of The St. Joseph Lead Mill, Lewis Alfred Delano

Professional Degree Theses

"In the concentrating of lead ores, the water used in the mills carries the tailings from the jigs and tables to chatt tanks. Here the chatts and sands settle while the greater part of the water overflows and enters a sluice or slimes branch to the settling ponds. This overflow water carries with it a great deal of float lead. It is impossible to catch this lead in the mill on moving machinery without using too much power and mill space to effect a profitable saving. Ninety percent of this float will pass through a 140 mesh sieve. there will ...


Steinmesch Hindered Settling Classifier, Jesse Herman Steinmesch Jan 1909

Steinmesch Hindered Settling Classifier, Jesse Herman Steinmesch

Professional Degree Theses

"The construction of the single classifier is well shown in the attached blueprint.

On the print it will be noted that the classifier is divided into two general parts, an upper hopper-shaped chamber GFED, and a lower portion consisting of the flat tube C, encased by the chamber A. Between upper and lower portions is the gasket L which serves to make a close joint between them, and also by forcing C downward, to make tight joints between A and C at both top and bottom. L is made of 1 ½” board. At D is a plate of #12 ...


The Relation Of The Composition Of A Mineral To Its Properties, Edwin Phelps Murray Jan 1909

The Relation Of The Composition Of A Mineral To Its Properties, Edwin Phelps Murray

Professional Degree Theses

"The attempt has been made to bring together and to classify the properties of minerals and to show that there is some simple qualitative relation between their composition and physical properties, or in other words, to show that minerals containing different percentages of a certain element will all have similar properties dependent upon the proportion of that element. Further investigation of this subject would be in determining the modifying influence of crystal form"--page 1.


General Method Of Procedure In The Working Out Of The Uncompahgre Valley Project, Colorado, Leo J. Foster Jan 1909

General Method Of Procedure In The Working Out Of The Uncompahgre Valley Project, Colorado, Leo J. Foster

Masters Theses

"On the 17th of June 1902, Congress passed an act which may have appeared of little moment at that time, but which is not attracting the attention of the people of the United States. It is known on the Statute Books as the Reclamation Act and its purpose is to provide a Reclamation Fund, the said fund being used only to examine and construct Irrigation Works in certain Western States and Territories. This Act provides that the proceeds of the sale of public lands in thirteen States and three Territories, known as the Public Land States, less a deduction of ...
