The Development Of A Copper-Silver Ore Body, Colwell Arba Pierce Jan 1916

The Development Of A Copper-Silver Ore Body, Colwell Arba Pierce

Bachelors Theses

"During the years 1912 to 1915 the writer had charge of the Ruby Copper Company property near Patagonia, Arizona, and it was suggested that a review of this work, with costs and data, would be helpful to other engineers engaged in similar enterprises"--Introduction, page 2.


The Flotation Of A West Joplin, Mo. Slime, John Stone Hoffman, James Joseph Dowd Jan 1916

The Flotation Of A West Joplin, Mo. Slime, John Stone Hoffman, James Joseph Dowd

Bachelors Theses

"Owing to the high price of zinc and the success attending flotation in other districts, intense interest was aroused in the flotation of slimes of the South-West Missouri District. These slimes are the accumulation of the finer particles of the ore during the milling process and their metallic content is generally higher than that of the original ore. They have been disposed of, in the past, by sluicing them to the tailings ponds because no economical method of saving the zinc had been discovered. The object of our experiments was to economically extract from these slimes, by flotation, a product ...


Pneumatic Ore Concentration, Robert Winters Johnson, Walter William Weissbach Jan 1916

Pneumatic Ore Concentration, Robert Winters Johnson, Walter William Weissbach

Bachelors Theses

"The concentration of lead and zinc ores by means of air is practically an unexplored field, although the subject is by no means a new one. Considerable research work has been done and several methods, processes and machines have been developed, but little or nothing has been accomplished towards making air separation a success. the lack of success has been due mainly to two reasons:- (1) That very little has been known about the internal conduct of air currents, and (2) that nearly all methods and machines so far worked out have presupposed the fact that the ore to be ...


Flotation Applied To Silicate Sludge, Yaro Klepel, Greene Erskine Jan 1916

Flotation Applied To Silicate Sludge, Yaro Klepel, Greene Erskine

Bachelors Theses

"Within the past few years great success has been made of the flotation of sulfids, and to a certain extent of carbonates.

Since sulfids are easily recovered by flotation it seems practicable that silicates could be made to float by first sulfidizing them, and then subjecting them to ordinary flotation treatment.

This problem involves the treatment of a silicate sludge obtained from the Joplin district, the sludge will easily pass through a 250 mesh screen. At the present time this sludge is being sent to the tailings pond.

The experimental work of this thesis was done along the line of ...


Report On The Lucky Bill Mine, Bayard, Grant County, New Mexico, Walter Gammeter Jan 1916

Report On The Lucky Bill Mine, Bayard, Grant County, New Mexico, Walter Gammeter

Bachelors Theses

"The Lucky Bill Mine is located, with reference to the Mining Districts of the State of New Mexico, in what is known as the Central Mining District. The Central Mining District includes the Sant sic Rita and Hanover regions in the north and eastern portions and camps within a radius of about six miles about the town of Central in other directions. The mining districts bounding the Central District are on the north the Georgetown District, on the west and south the Silver City District and on the east the Hillsborough District"--Location of the Mine, Page 1.


Notes On The Development Of The Flotation Process For Concentrating Copper And Iron Sulphide Ore, Holman Thompson Marshall Jan 1916

Notes On The Development Of The Flotation Process For Concentrating Copper And Iron Sulphide Ore, Holman Thompson Marshall

Bachelors Theses

"The first flotation machines was installed at the Magna Mill of the Utah Copper Co. in August and September, 1914. The outbreak of the war in Europe having made necessary the shutting down of the Arthur Mill of the same company, the flotation plant was installed at Magna for the purpose of carrying on experiments which had been in process at Arthur. Enough experimentation had been done with the small laboratory machine at Arthur, and results obtained were favorable enough to warrant the installation of a full size Janney machine"--page 1.


Problems In Flotation, William Henry Mccartney Jan 1916

Problems In Flotation, William Henry Mccartney

Bachelors Theses

"Little has been done to classify oils on the basis of their action as flotation agents, either for their frothing or their selective qualities...This investigation was undertaken chiefly to aid in effecting such a classification"--page 3.


Preliminary Report On The Property Of The Ruby Copper Company, Colwell Arba Pierce Jan 1916

Preliminary Report On The Property Of The Ruby Copper Company, Colwell Arba Pierce

Professional Degree Theses

"The property of the Ruby Copper Company is located in Township 21 S., Range 15 E., near the southern end of the Santa Rita Mountains, Wrightson Mining District, Santa Cruz County, Arizona. It is reached by a good wagon road from the town of Pantagonia, which, because of its location on the Benson to Nogales Branch of the Southern Pacific Railroad, is the supply point for a large mining section--page 1.


Notes On Mine Operations Of The American Zinc Company Of Tennessee, Homer Kent Sherry Jan 1916

Notes On Mine Operations Of The American Zinc Company Of Tennessee, Homer Kent Sherry

Professional Degree Theses

"The zinc ores mined at and near Mascot, Tennessee, are found in the upper part of the Knox dolomite which according to Keith was laid down in the middle Cambrian or Silurian age. This formation has a thickness of several thousand feet and is composed of layers of dolomite, limestone, sandstone, shale and some chert. The ore bearing portion at least is much folded with minor faulting and high brecciation. The axis of the folds lie Northeast by Southwest with the faulting in the same direction. The ore being mined is found on the Southeast dip in a fairly definite ...


A Report On "La Cotabambas Auraria" Mining Company, Hector Julio Boza Jan 1916

A Report On "La Cotabambas Auraria" Mining Company, Hector Julio Boza

Professional Degree Theses

"The present report, relative to the studies on the value of Cochasayhuas and descriptive of what was discovered and worked by me in that mining district, is written in fulfilment [sic] the commission which was entrusted to me at the begining [sic] of the month of April last. Special circumstances give to the studies made and conclusions formed a certain and appreciable value. There already existing in the Company's works various crushing machines and small tanks for cyaniding, I was able to see in great part the results of my tests with the metal in the chemical laboratory, in ...


Comparison Of Operating Expenses And Capital Expenditures Of Two Different Types Of Boiler Rooms Covering Extensions Expected During The Next Twenty Years, George Hewitt Boyer Jan 1916

Comparison Of Operating Expenses And Capital Expenditures Of Two Different Types Of Boiler Rooms Covering Extensions Expected During The Next Twenty Years, George Hewitt Boyer

Professional Degree Theses

"This thesis applies to a central power station located in a rapidly growing manufacturing city with a present population of 40,000. The station is connected by high voltage transmission lines with six hydro and steam generating stations located in other cities. These transmission lines are mainly for emergency purposes so that this report considers that the station here studied will carry its full load. The boiler room is the only part of the station considered in this thesis as a previous study showed that there was ample space in the engine room for turbo-generator for years to come"--Introduction ...


Cyaniding The Buckhorn Clay, Paul Richardson Cook Jan 1916

Cyaniding The Buckhorn Clay, Paul Richardson Cook

Professional Degree Theses

"The Buckhorn, Nevada, gold mine is peculiar in being a shallow kaolinized mass of material with basalt walls, having no direct connection with any of the usual gold bearing rocks, the average ore containing 16% water of hydratum. the cyaniding of this hydrant clayey material offered unusual difficulties compared with the usual gold quartz ore of Nevada. The ore body was thoroughly developed; then the mill was built according to the latest cyanide practice, with such changes as was thought the peculiar nature of this ore demanded. Upon starting the mill, the ore proved more difficulty to handle than had ...
