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.

Flotation Of Huebnerite, Henry Albright

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The development of suitable beneficiation processes for treating domestic low-grade tungsten ores is a problem now facing the mineral industry. While we are now consuming more tungsten than normally because of the defense program, we are no longer able to import ores from the world's principal source, China. The problem then, is to increase our domestic production so as to ac­quire a greater degree of self-sufficiency.

The Construction Of An X-Ray Camera, Emil Bazarnicki

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The major portion of the construction of the X-ray camera was performed in the machine shop of Montana School of Mines. However, some machine work had to be accomplished in the Butte High Machine Shop, as well as in the machine shop of the Anaconda Copper Mining Company.


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.

The Immersion Coating Of Indium Upon Magnesium From Sulphate Solutions Containing Flourides, John J. Harrington May 1952

The Immersion Coating Of Indium Upon Magnesium From Sulphate Solutions Containing Flourides, John J. Harrington

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The thesis problem that will be discussed in this report is an investiga­tion of a method of plating a coating of indium upon magnesium and magnesium alloys. The method used to accomplish the final results is the immersion pro­cess. It can be defined as the process of coating a metal with a second metal by immersing the first in a solution containing ions of the second.


Variation Of Induction And Hysteresis Curves For The Heusler Alloy, Cu2mna1, Ford W. Knight May 1952

Variation Of Induction And Hysteresis Curves For The Heusler Alloy, Cu2mna1, Ford W. Knight

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this investigation is to determine the fundamental magnetic characteristics of induction and hysteresis, for the alloy Cu2MnAl. This is a ternary, ferromagnetic Heusler alloy. The problem is not only to determine these characteristics for the alloy as-cast but to heat treat it and observe the manner in which different heat treat­ments affect these two fundamental magnetic characteristics.


Electrowinning Of Zinc By Mercury Cathode, Tor O. Notevarp May 1952

Electrowinning Of Zinc By Mercury Cathode, Tor O. Notevarp

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The problem was the investigation of electrowinning of zinc by using a mercury cathode, employing a neutral solution of zinc sulphate and containing small amounts of zinc, in the order of ten grams zinc per liter and less. The purpose of this study was on the base of the laboratory experiments to investigate the operational data that might possibly be applied in practice or industry.


The Effect Of Ferric Iron Upon The Current Efficiency And The Deposition Of Copper In The Electrowinning Of Copper From Copper Sulphate Solutions, James L. Owings May 1952

The Effect Of Ferric Iron Upon The Current Efficiency And The Deposition Of Copper In The Electrowinning Of Copper From Copper Sulphate Solutions, James L. Owings

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the hydrometallurgy of copper, probably the most widely used method for the precipitation of copper is by electrolysis using insoluble anodes. The process is similar in many respects to the electrolytic refining of copper; one of the main differences is the use of insoluble anodes in electrowinning as compared to the use of impure copper anodes in electrorefining. Impurities, however, are common to both processes. The nature of these impurities differ and the problem of purifying the electrolyte is also different.

An Attempted Determination Of The Approximate Chemical Composition Of The Livingston Volcanics By The Fused Bead Technique, Robert D. Geach

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Many fine-grained igneous rocks, basaltic and felsitic in character, are difficult to classify. In numer­ous cases, it is impossible to classify these types of rocks by quick methods of identification. It was hoped at the beginning of this study that refractive indices of glasses formed by quick artificial fusion of samples from selected suites of igneous rocks would show a close cor­relation in chemical composition.
