Oil Shales In Montana, Richard N. Miller Feb 1953

Oil Shales In Montana, Richard N. Miller

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Montana has long been known to have very large resources of coal and oil, and undetermined amounts of oil shale. The reserves of coal and oil have been proven, in part, and have been produced commercially, but not much is known about the extent and apparent value of the oil shales. Under present .conditions, and according to standards set by the United States Bureau of Mines, the shales are not of commercial value. They are, however, a potentially valuable mineral resource, and portions of them will possibly be utilized, although not in the near future.


The Sedimentary Petrography Of The Oil And Gas Producing Horizons In Montana, Patrick J. Donahue May 1952

The Sedimentary Petrography Of The Oil And Gas Producing Horizons In Montana, Patrick J. Donahue

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Montana is an excellent oil province, as oil and gas are pro­duced from a wider range of beds in the geologic section than in any other district in the United States. (1,864) Commercial fields have been developed in Ordovician, Devonian, Mississippian, Pennsylvanian, Jurassic, Lower Cretaceous, and Upper Cretaceous. It is believed that by describing the physical characteristics of the producing horizons, and by placing this information in one compact volume, a better under­standing of oil and gas occurrence in Montana may be gained.

The Birdie Mine Tungsten Deposit Butte Mining District, Silverbow County, Montana, Bernard A. Fahm May 1952

The Birdie Mine Tungsten Deposit Butte Mining District, Silverbow County, Montana, Bernard A. Fahm

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The importance of tungsten has encouraged the search for minerals of this metal, and consequently new deposits have been discovered, and known deposits have been re-examined. Western Montana has rather widespread deposits if low-grade types are also considered. Many deposits were known long ago, but abandoned because the use of tungsten was still in its beginning stage and therefore little attention was given to this type of mineral.
