Flotation Of Huebnerite, Henry Albright May 1952

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.


A Listing Of Montana Invertebrate Fossils And A Bibliography Of Montana Paleontology, Robert G. Ingersoll May 1951

A Listing Of Montana Invertebrate Fossils And A Bibliography Of Montana Paleontology, Robert G. Ingersoll

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The oldest system in which identifiable invertebrate fossils have been found is the Cambrian. The basal Cambrian formation found in Montana is the Flathead sandstone and quartzite of Middle Cambrian age. No fossils have been reported from this formation. Above the Flathead is the Wolsey formation composed of green fissile shale with sandy and limy members. This fossiliferous member of the Middle Cambrian is known in Northwestern Montana as Gordon, and in the Philipsburg quadrangle as the Silver Hill formation.


The Psilomelane Mineral Of The Butte District, Montana, Logan E. Davis May 1949

The Psilomelane Mineral Of The Butte District, Montana, Logan E. Davis

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

During the last few years a great deal of research has been done in connection with the black manganese oxide minerals. This is especially true of the so called mineral psilomelane. It has been proven without a doubt that the name psilomelane has been used in the past to include a great variety of similar black manganese oxide minerals. By the use of X-ray equipment these minerals have been definitely identified.


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.


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.


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.


An Investigation Of The Ores Of The Big Seven Mine, Neihart, Montana, Francis L. Wilson Apr 1942

An Investigation Of The Ores Of The Big Seven Mine, Neihart, Montana, Francis L. Wilson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

During the course of this investigation of the ores of the Big Seven mine, Neihart, Montana, the writer has attempted, through a mi­croscopic study of polished sections, to ascertain the hypogene or supergene character of the ore minerals present in the ore suite.


Microscopic Study Of Montana Silver Ores., Edwin Johnson May 1935

Microscopic Study Of Montana Silver Ores., Edwin Johnson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A microscopic investigation of the Montana silver minerals was conducted. This study consisted mainly of identifying the silver and silver-bearing minerals and of determining their paragenetic rela­tionships. The increasing amount of research in which the reflecting microscope is employed is evidence of the great value of this method of approach in the solution of problems of paragenesis of the opaque minerals.


The Geology Of Lost Creek Canyon With Special Reference To Igneous Activity, John Kolesar May 1935

The Geology Of Lost Creek Canyon With Special Reference To Igneous Activity, John Kolesar

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This investigation was undertaken primarily as a problem in geologic mapping, coupled with a study of stratigraphy, glaciation, igneous phenomena, and structure. The area is admirably suited to a study of geology and geologic events. Because it is small in extent, the area was studied in some detail during the time which was devoted to field work. The record of igneous activity of past geological ages is re­markably well exposed, since Lost Creek Canyon was carved through the roof of a stock or batholith by the glaciers of the Pleistocene epoch.
