Plans And Specifications Of A Proposed Plant For Treating The High-Grade Silver Concentrate Of The Buffalo Mill By Tube-Mill Amalgamation, Hector George Sylvester Anderson Jan 1912

Plans And Specifications Of A Proposed Plant For Treating The High-Grade Silver Concentrate Of The Buffalo Mill By Tube-Mill Amalgamation, Hector George Sylvester Anderson

Professional Degree Theses

"Pursuant to your orders regarding the making of experimental tests on the high-grade silver concentrate of the Buffalo Mill, both on a small and a commercial scale, to determine the feasibility of extracting the silver contents and refining the same to 999-fine bullion I beg to submit the results of my work which has extended through the past two months. In the majority of the tests I have used a small Abbe-Engineering pebble-jars which will hold easily 1500 grams of ore and have checked the results obtained in these cases by similar results obtained by charging 1000 lbs. of ore ...


Statement Of Mining Costs In The Butte District Three Months Ending June First 1910, Clifford Leroy Conway, George Sylvester Thomas, George Francis Condon Jan 1912

Statement Of Mining Costs In The Butte District Three Months Ending June First 1910, Clifford Leroy Conway, George Sylvester Thomas, George Francis Condon

Bachelors Theses

"The following cost data were compiled from the monthly cost sheets of the several mines, through a period of three months, April, May and June 1910. These figures were obtained from the cost sheets of the Anaconda Copper Mining Co. and are exact in every instance. The scale of wages and the cost of supplies which prevailed during the period that these figures were created were as follows"--page 3.


Testing Explosives, Frank James Flynn, Miller Edward Willmott Jan 1912

Testing Explosives, Frank James Flynn, Miller Edward Willmott

Bachelors Theses

"The following tests and experiments were carried on to determine: first, the utility of a certain well known method of making comparative tests of explosives and second; to show some of the conditions that influence the force and effect of a blast, such as the size of detonator, the use of tamping, the size of bore hole, and the size and number of free faces exposed to the blast"--Introduction, page 1.

Coal Washing, Mark S. Sheffer, Thomas Andrew Stroup Jan 1912

Coal Washing, Mark S. Sheffer, Thomas Andrew Stroup

Bachelors Theses

"The rapid growth of the coal washing industry in the United States during the past few years is characteristic of the general tendency toward more economical and efficient utilization of the natural resources, the washing of coal being a process of enrichment of one of the most necessary and widely used raw products. This industry is of great importance to the men engaged in mining of coal as well as to the community at large, and since it makes possible the use of originally poor coals, it conserves one of the natural resources absolutely essential for the progress of the ...

Efficiency Of The Missouri School Of Mines Power Plant And Cost Of Operation, Cairy C. Conover, John Richardson Kenney, Louie Lincoln Coover Jan 1912

Efficiency Of The Missouri School Of Mines Power Plant And Cost Of Operation, Cairy C. Conover, John Richardson Kenney, Louie Lincoln Coover

Bachelors Theses

"These tests were made for the purpose of getting the efficiency of the electric power plant as it was being run and the cost of operating it. Tests were first made on the boilers separately. The load at the time of the test was too heavy for one boiler and too light for tow, part of the steam being used for heating the buildings and for the air-compressor. This made it so that no combined test of the boilers and generating couple could be made until the warm weather came and the laboratories using compressed air were closed, which was ...


Treatment Of An Arizona Gold Ore, Scott D. Callaway, Henry F. Adams Jan 1912

Treatment Of An Arizona Gold Ore, Scott D. Callaway, Henry F. Adams

Bachelors Theses

"This thesis is a description of experiments preformed sic to determine the best scheme of treatment of a gold ore"--page 1.


Roasting Pyrite For Magnetism With Minimum Sulphur Volatilization, Dale Irwin Hayes, Clark Watson Wright Jan 1912

Roasting Pyrite For Magnetism With Minimum Sulphur Volatilization, Dale Irwin Hayes, Clark Watson Wright

Bachelors Theses

"In Wisconsin and other zinc mining districts the blende is frequently found associated with pyrite and marcasite. In the Wisconsin district, especially, the marcasite content of the mine-run ore is high being frequently equal to and in many cases greater than the sphalerite content. At time the marcasite and sphalerite together constitute as much as 25 or 30% of the min-run ore. The characteristic milling treatment of this ore is; first, hand-picking, and then over grizzlies, tromells, rougher and cleaner jigs. Owing to the fact that marcasite and sphalerite differ but slightly in specific gravity the jig concentrate obtained is ...

The Measurement Of Compressed Air And Its Consumption In Rock Drills, Homer Kent Sherry, William Porri Jan 1912

The Measurement Of Compressed Air And Its Consumption In Rock Drills, Homer Kent Sherry, William Porri

Bachelors Theses

"The object of this thesis is to investigate the measurement of compressed air and to determine its consumption in rock drills. Our intention at first was to run more exhaustive tests on the drills, but due to the large amount of work necessary in rigging up the apparatus and computing results, we found it necessary to curtail our work to representative types of the hammer and the piston machines. We regret being unable to give more complete data in regard to the drills, but hope to point out fields for future work since, with the increased facilities now at hand ...
