An Investigation Into The Causes Of Accidents To Shot Firers In Bituminous Coal Mines, George Edwin Lyman Jan 1910

An Investigation Into The Causes Of Accidents To Shot Firers In Bituminous Coal Mines, George Edwin Lyman

Professional Degree Theses

"In many cases the explosions which kill so many shot firers can be directly attributed to the presence of gas, or coal dust, but often there will be explosions of terrific violence in mines which are so wet as to preclude the possibility of dust being held in suspension in the air current, and where no gas has been detected in the history of the mine. Such an instance came under the writer's observation some time ago in which his opportunities of investigation were excellent, and the results of which may perhaps throw light on other apparently mysterious explosions ...


Dredging, Swan River, Colorado, Henry William Lohman Jan 1910

Dredging, Swan River, Colorado, Henry William Lohman

Professional Degree Theses

"Operations for the extraction of gold from the gravels of this river, were started about ten years ago, at which time it was attempted by means of hydraulic elevators, later by means of the early type dredge, Risdon design, of which three were installed, and later still, an early type Bucyrus Dredge. These all resulted in failure, some alleged to have been due to impossibility of reaching bed-rock; small yardage capacity; and fraility [sic] of design. these have been overcome in the latest type of dredge constructed by the Bucyrus Company, description of which follow later. Dredging here, differs from ...

A Study Of The Efficiency Of Discharge Of Classifier Spigots, Harmon Edwin Minor, James Bunten Jan 1910

A Study Of The Efficiency Of Discharge Of Classifier Spigots, Harmon Edwin Minor, James Bunten

Bachelors Theses

"A knowledge of the amounts of water and sand that will be discharged by classifier spigots under various conditions is of considerable importance in the design of classifiers. Suppose it is desired to discharge fifty tons of sand with an average diameter of 2 m.m. through a spigot orifice, the sand being mixed with 100 tons of water and the entire amount of the mixture being discharged in ten hours from the spigot, which is submerged to a depth of two feet under the water. How large a spigot is required? Problems such as this are by no means ...

The Concentration Of A Pyrolusite Ore, Frank O. Blake, Van Hoose Smith Jan 1910

The Concentration Of A Pyrolusite Ore, Frank O. Blake, Van Hoose Smith

Bachelors Theses

"This is the history of an attempt to produce from a pyrolusite ore, a material sufficiently rich in manganese to be of value in the various industries such as the making of speigeleisen and ferro-manganese, the glass manufacturing, and the chemical industries. The greater part of the manganese used in the United States comes from Brazil, India and Russia. Our American ores are, in general, low grade and requires various preliminary concentration to fit them for use. Although we possess in this country a great deal of manganese ore, which could be put into suitable condition for the market, there ...

A Study Of The Electrical Resistance Of Coke, Gas-Carbon, And Kryptol Under Varying Conditions, Benton Franklin Murphy, Reuben Conrad Thompson Jan 1910

A Study Of The Electrical Resistance Of Coke, Gas-Carbon, And Kryptol Under Varying Conditions, Benton Franklin Murphy, Reuben Conrad Thompson

Bachelors Theses

"This thesis was undertaken to make a study of the resistance of coke, gas-carbon, and kryptol when used as resistors in the electric resistance furnace, which daily is becoming of increasing industrial importance. It would appear at first sight that the calculation and design of an electric resistance furnace would be an extremely simple problem, since the whole effect is the change of electrical energy into heat according to Joule's Law; but this is by no means the case, as the resistance of the resistor may change enormously during the run of the furnace. The great difficulty met with ...

Modern Cyanide Practice, Harvey Edson Smith Jan 1910

Modern Cyanide Practice, Harvey Edson Smith

Bachelors Theses

"It is noticable sic that about all of the recent improvements in cyanide practise sic have been along mechanical rather than chemical lines. the use of oxidizers such as air, ozone, sodium peroxide, etc., the use of the salts of lead, and even the addition of a coating of lead to the zinc shavings in the extractor boxes were all recommended when the process was first advocated but sometimes for different reasons. In the early days of the process the addition of hypochlorites, alkaline persulphates, and the use of mercuric cyanide was also investigated but has not proven satisfactory owing ...

Nichrome As A Rheostat Resistance, George C. Vogt Jan 1910

Nichrome As A Rheostat Resistance, George C. Vogt

Bachelors Theses

"Nichrome wire is a high resistance alloy, and is not appreciably effected in its resistance by changes of temperature to which it may be subjected in practice. This was shown by the low temperature coefficient obtained. Nichrome does not deteriorate by heating, as shown by torsion-tests after current has been passed through wire. German-Silver however, becomes brittle. Nichrome in a moist atmosphere corrodes rapidly, but in a relatively dry atmosphere, and heated red hot, no signs of oxidation or corrosion could be seen. By all results obtained as to strength, resistance, etc., Nichrome is superior to German-Silver as a resistance ...

Geology In The Vicinity Of Palmer, Mo., Alfred Nicks Detweiler, John Kavanaugh Forman Jan 1910

Geology In The Vicinity Of Palmer, Mo., Alfred Nicks Detweiler, John Kavanaugh Forman

Bachelors Theses

"This area has been of minor importance in the production of ore on a commercial scale, the ore mined being residual in clay in openings occuring sic in dolomite and with chert, all near the surface, the mining being done by individuals who felt disposed to sink a shaft on some supposedly mineralized spot in the hope of uncovering a few tons or ore. Mining operations have been carried on intermittently for more than a century, so we are told, the early miners breaking the rock by first heating it with a wood fire, and then suddenly cooling it with ...

Reheating Compressed Air By Internal Combustion, Norman L. Ohnsorg Jan 1910

Reheating Compressed Air By Internal Combustion, Norman L. Ohnsorg

Professional Degree Theses

"The perfection of a reheater of high efficiency has been discussed and experimented upon for a period of time nearly as long as the application of compressed air itself. At the present time all the reheaters are by the external combustion of fuel as in the case of stoves or furnaces, where the air pipes are carried through the flames or is surrounded by steam pipes, or by some similar contrivance, all of which the heating efficiency of the fuel upon the compressed air is low, due to the great loss by radiation, and hot escaping gases. Reheating compressed air ...


A Study Of The Losses Occurring In The Milling And Smelting Of Missouri-Kansas Zinc Ores, Horace T. Mann Jan 1910

A Study Of The Losses Occurring In The Milling And Smelting Of Missouri-Kansas Zinc Ores, Horace T. Mann

Professional Degree Theses

"At the present time the greater portion of the zinc mined in the Joplin District, is taken from what is known as the sheet-ground. What percentage of the zinc bearing rock is extracted or what percentage is left in the ground when the mine is abandoned, which owing to caving and other causes can not be recovered at some future time, is not known. It is to be hoped that the State Geological Survey will in the near future be able to take up the investigation of this subject. Until they do it will be impossible to make a reliable ...


A New Copper District In Southern Arizona, Harry Carleton Chamberlain Jan 1910

A New Copper District In Southern Arizona, Harry Carleton Chamberlain

Professional Degree Theses

"Within the last two or three years, the copper mining industry has been growing at a remarkable rate. Perhaps not so much in the output of refined copper as in the exploitation and development of new fields. The panic of 1907 left its mark only too deep on many of the then producing mines. the inflated price of copper has aroused interest in those who owned or controlled small or undeveloped mines ... One of these districts is the one to be treated of in this report. It is not a new discovery, but rather one of the oldest camps in ...


Design Of 300 Ton Cyanide Tailings Plant And Operation Of Same, Lamar Horacio Hunt Jan 1910

Design Of 300 Ton Cyanide Tailings Plant And Operation Of Same, Lamar Horacio Hunt

Masters Theses

"The plant in question was designed by the writer, to treat the immense tailings dumps of the Sacramento Gold Mining company at Mercur, Utah, consisting of one-half million tons of old cyanide tailings. The ore is porous and friable, causing much slime, which is impermeable to cyanide solution, by the old leaching system. Slime has always been troublesome, and the above plant was designed to overcome this difficulty"--page [1].
