The Fort Union Formation Of Montana And Adjacent Areas, Charles Christman

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Fort Union formation is one of the most import­ant and best known geologic formations of the northern Great Plains, and is found lying almost horizontal at the surface over large areas in this region.


Manganese Oxide Deposits Near Butte And Development Since 1942, Emmett M. Gilmore May 1948

Manganese Oxide Deposits Near Butte And Development Since 1942, Emmett M. Gilmore

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The manganese minerals occur in the peripheral zone of the Butte district with quartz in veins, which at depth contain galena and sphalerite closely associated with silver-bearing minerals. The manganese oxides are all oxidation products formed by weathering of primary rhodochrosite or rhodonite.


Concentration Of Manganese Dioxide From Philipsburg, Montana, W. M. Mcauliffe May 1948

Concentration Of Manganese Dioxide From Philipsburg, Montana, W. M. Mcauliffe

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Imports of manganese ore probably supply a major proportion of the needs of the United States. Domestic production is reported to be higher than pre-war levels, but does not equal that of the peak production year of 1943. In 1946, the Anaconda Copper Mining Company ac­counted for 90 percent of the total shipments of mangan­ese nodules, and this company is the largest producer of domestic metallurgical ore in the United States.


A Discussion Of The Geology And An Isopach Map Of The Pennsylvanian System In Wyoming And Adjacent Areas, B. R. Alto May 1948

A Discussion Of The Geology And An Isopach Map Of The Pennsylvanian System In Wyoming And Adjacent Areas, B. R. Alto

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Pennsylvanian strata in Wyoming and adjacent areas have been the subject of much work and discussion. Most of the work has been due to the economic importance of the system as an oil producer in this region. Oil production from strata of Pennsylvanian age is rather recent history; and therefore, much of the available information is local­ized and incomplete.


Sandstones Of The Lance And Fort Union Formations, Alan G. Conner May 1948

Sandstones Of The Lance And Fort Union Formations, Alan G. Conner

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Fort Union and Lance formations are widespread terrestrial sediments exposed in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Canada. Their stratigraphic position, especially that of the Lance, has long been in doubt, and has provoked much controversy among geologists.


Flotation Concentration Of A Montana Lead-Zinc-Silver-Ore, Grover W. Gregson May 1948

Flotation Concentration Of A Montana Lead-Zinc-Silver-Ore, Grover W. Gregson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Mike Horse mine, in the Huddelston mining district, is fifty-two miles northwest of Helena, Montana. The mine was discovered in 1898 by Joseph Heitmiller. There was only minor production from the date of discovery until 1915; the main drawback being lack of good road.


The Physiographic History Of Western Montana And Northwestern Idaho, John R. Kavanagh May 1948

The Physiographic History Of Western Montana And Northwestern Idaho, John R. Kavanagh

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Millions of years of physiographic changes have conditioned us to the fact that our present drainage is a temporary feature. Rivers once flowing opposite to their present direction is not an unusual condition for physiographers to suggest.


An Isopach Map And A Discussion Of The Permian In Wyoming And Adjacent Areas, Willard Leskela May 1948

An Isopach Map And A Discussion Of The Permian In Wyoming And Adjacent Areas, Willard Leskela

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The accelerated post-war demand for petroleum products with resultant high prices and dwindling reserves has spurred producers to an extensive search for new fields and for ad­ditional production in known fields. Exploration and discov­ery is dependent on the collection and correlation of vast amounts of data both in the field and that found in liter­ature.


Roasting And Leaching Of Montana Chromite, Jerry D. Murphy May 1948

Roasting And Leaching Of Montana Chromite, Jerry D. Murphy

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The United States, although the leading consumer of chromite, depends almost entirely on imports for its supply. Domestic production of chromite is limited, because high-grade imported ore is plentiful and inexpensive in normal times. There are several large deposits of chromite in the United States, representing millions of tons of low grade ore. These deposits form a strategic reserve that must be used in time of national emergency.


A Mineral Dressing Study Of The U.S. Grant Ore, John Emmett Murphy May 1948

A Mineral Dressing Study Of The U.S. Grant Ore, John Emmett Murphy

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This investigation concerns the development of a satis­factory method or extracting or concentrating gold and silver from the ores of the U. S. Grant Mine. The choice between applying an extractive process and one by which the valuable mineral constituents are concentrated depends on more than one factor.


Karst Kamp Asbestos Deposits Gallatin County, Montana, Thomas L. Wilson May 1948

Karst Kamp Asbestos Deposits Gallatin County, Montana, Thomas L. Wilson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Karst Kamp, a southwestern Montana recreation re­sort, is 32 road miles south of Bozeman on the east bank of the Gallatin River in a narrow V-shaped valley flanked on the west by the rugged Madison mountain range and on the east by the equally rough Gallatin range. The asbestos deposit itself lies approximate­ly one-half mile northwest of the ranch on a heavily timbered "Al­pine-like" slope nearly 1200 feet above the floor of the valley.


Geology Of The Lost Creek-Modesty Creek Area Deerlodge County, Montana, Howard B. Nickelson, Robert L. Pott May 1948

Geology Of The Lost Creek-Modesty Creek Area Deerlodge County, Montana, Howard B. Nickelson, Robert L. Pott

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In 1915 the United States Geological Survey published a folio by Calkins and Emmons on the geology of the Philipsburg Quadrangle, which ad­joins the area now under study to the west. Geology of this portion of Montana had not been mapped previously; consequently the purpose of this thesis is to make a geological reconnais­sance of the stratigraphy and structure of the area.


Geology Of Montana, Stanley G. Olson May 1948

Geology Of Montana, Stanley G. Olson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A vast amount of information has been published by many workers on particular features of the geology of the state of Montana, as well as on local geology of many smaller divi­sions. However, a satisfactory summary of the geology in general, which would include all phases of geology as they apply to the greater area of the entire state, has not been published.


Leaching Of Low Grade Rhodochrosite, E. D. King May 1948

Leaching Of Low Grade Rhodochrosite, E. D. King

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Although there are many uses for manganese today, none of them approaches its importance as a deoxidizing agent in the manufac­ture of steels. Without manganese the steelmaking in­dustry would be very seriously handicapped. The metal­lurgy of manganese has been developed around the high-grade ores, and unfortunately, our reserves of high-grade ores are very limited.


Geology Of Upper Bear Gulch And Dry Boulder Creek Area Madison County, Montana, Norman King Apr 1948

Geology Of Upper Bear Gulch And Dry Boulder Creek Area Madison County, Montana, Norman King

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Potential gold mines lie high among the rugged peaks of the Tobacco Root Mountains of southwestern Montana. This is a region where little geologic work has been done, though extensive mine operations have been carried on, and valuable ore has been shipped.


A Preliminary Study Of The Benefication Of Montana Kyanite, Donald Paul Mccarthy Apr 1948

A Preliminary Study Of The Benefication Of Montana Kyanite, Donald Paul Mccarthy

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This investigation is a preliminary study of the beneficiation of Montana kyanite, and while preliminary in degree the information gained may serve as a guide for the eventual exploitation of this Montana resource.


A Geological Report On South Boulder Canyon And The Mayflower Mine-Renova Areas, B. R. Alto Jan 1948

A Geological Report On South Boulder Canyon And The Mayflower Mine-Renova Areas, B. R. Alto

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this report is to serve as a written explanation of the accompanying geologic maps and columnar sec­tion. Each year the senior students in mining and geological engineering at the Montana School of Mines spend two weeks in the field where they learn the fundamentals of geologic mapping and related field studies. An additional week is spent at the school where maps are assembled, prints made, end other work is done in preparation for the writing of the report.


Geology 63: Geological Report Of Senior Field Trip, Thomas L. Wilson Jan 1948

Geology 63: Geological Report Of Senior Field Trip, Thomas L. Wilson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The field work was conducted in areas adjacent to White­hall, Montana, as has been the custom for the past several years. Instruction in the proper use of the telescopic and open sight alidades, and the Brunton compass for surveying geologic features was given. Advantages of pacing and speed­ometer mapping were pointed out and used.
