The Lucky Hit Mine Of Jefferson County, Montana, Bruce B. Goddard Jun 1953

The Lucky Hit Mine Of Jefferson County, Montana, Bruce B. Goddard

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Many mines in the Cardwell Mining District have been more or less steady producers of gold, silver, lead and zinc since 18SO. The area first came into prominence with the discovery of gold at the Mayflower Mine in 1896. Soon after the Mayflower discovery, many claims were located in the nearby Saint Paul Gulch area, northeast of Whitehall. The Lucky Hit Mine is located in Saint Paul Gulch area of the Cardwell Mining District.


Geology Of The Marget Ann Mine Butte District, Montana, Winston Martin Sahinen May 1953

Geology Of The Marget Ann Mine Butte District, Montana, Winston Martin Sahinen

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

As the field work progressed it became apparent that very little was known of the mineralogical associations of the precious metal constituents of the Marget Ann ore. A mineralogical study in excess of that originally planned was then decided upon to de­termine the affiliations exhibited by the silver and gold. With these objectives in mind, the laboratory and field work continued.


The Accessory Minerals Of Some Granitic Rocks Of The Boulder Batholith, Robert T. Donahue May 1952

The Accessory Minerals Of Some Granitic Rocks Of The Boulder Batholith, Robert T. Donahue

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Although the position of the Boulder batholith in space and time is well known, the modes of occurrence of various rock types and the inter-relationships between the petrographic types are not known in detail.


The Occurrences Of Non-Metallic Minerals In Montana, Samuel T. Mitchell Jun 1951

The Occurrences Of Non-Metallic Minerals In Montana, Samuel T. Mitchell

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This thesis is essentially an abstract of the literature concerning occurrences in Montana of minerals with a non-metallic luster. The dis­cussions give a general description of the occurrences of minerals as reported by the various references, but is not complete as less than 40 percent of the non-metallic minerals known to exist in Montana are discussed.


Chemical Analysis Of Igneous Rocks And Variation Diagrams Of Petrographic Provinces Of Montana, Frederick M. Hilpert May 1951

Chemical Analysis Of Igneous Rocks And Variation Diagrams Of Petrographic Provinces Of Montana, Frederick M. Hilpert

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A total of 179 chemical analyses of igneous rocks are avail­able for the state of Montana, but these analyses do not cover the entire state in a satisfactory manner. There has been an emphasis on the central part of the state, and an almost complete lack of interest in the southern portion of Montana.


A Microscopic Study Of The Ore Minerals From The Mines In The Northern Part Of The Zosell (Emery) Mining District, John P. Joyce May 1951

A Microscopic Study Of The Ore Minerals From The Mines In The Northern Part Of The Zosell (Emery) Mining District, John P. Joyce

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Any investigation of the many gold silver producing districts of Montana will necessarily include the name Zosell. The Zosell Mining District, often referred to as the Emery District, was never a major producer in the state; however, its location, history, type of deposit, and char­acter of ore, has drawn the interest of many prominent investigators of the mineral industry.


Czarina Mine, Butte, Montana, Prodyot K. Das Jun 1950

Czarina Mine, Butte, Montana, Prodyot K. Das

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Czarina mine operated for a short time during the last Great War, lies in the southwestern corner of the Butte mining district of Montana. This area was worked during the extensive silver mining in Butte during the 1890's, and was prospected from time to time in later years. The orebody of the mine consists of fissure fillings of manganese mineral oxidized to a certain depth, in a fracture zone of the Boulder Batholith.


Mineralization Of The Bonanza Mine, H. M. Callaway Jun 1950

Mineralization Of The Bonanza Mine, H. M. Callaway

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Bonanza mine of the Emery mining district in Powell County is on the largest veins in the area, and is developed to a depth of 680 feet by an incline shaft following the dip of the structure. Sulfide ores carrying gold and silver values are mined throughout the area which is easily accessible by road from Deerlodge, Montana, ten miles west of the district.


A Study Of The Divide-Dewey Contact Of The Boulder Batholith, Francis M. Young Jun 1950

A Study Of The Divide-Dewey Contact Of The Boulder Batholith, Francis M. Young

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The batholith is dated as Paleocene or early Eocene. The rocks of the batholith in this area are classified as ranging from quartz-granodiorite to granodiorite. Variation in mineral content causes a chance in color tone from light to dark gray. swarms of inclusions occur in the igneous rock near the contact.


Physiographic Surfaces And Weathering Near Butte, Gordon B. Brox May 1950

Physiographic Surfaces And Weathering Near Butte, Gordon B. Brox

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Three cycles of erosion have modified the Boulder batholith. The earliest cycle produced a peneplaination that has been largely obliterated by a partially completed intermediate cycle, and the recent cycle now in progress.


Geology Of Smoke Hollow Area 8 Miles Southeast Of Deerlodge, Powell County, Montana, Floyd C. Bossard May 1950

Geology Of Smoke Hollow Area 8 Miles Southeast Of Deerlodge, Powell County, Montana, Floyd C. Bossard

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This investigation was undertaken primarily as a problem in geologic mapping. The stratigraphy was studied as to the character, age, and sequence of the geologic formations that are exposed. The conclusions were based principally on the field relationships and lithology because no fossils were found.


Structure Of Southwestern Montana, Donald W. Levandowski May 1950

Structure Of Southwestern Montana, Donald W. Levandowski

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Intrusions of granitic rocks on a large scale are commonly found in the central part of folded mountain systems. Igneous rocks, intrusive and extrusive, are widespread in the mountains of southwestern Montana. An examination of the structural pattern of this area indicates that the fold trends form a radial pattern. How and why this pattern formed and its relation to the igneous activity in the area have not yet been discussed in the literature.


Was Assimilation Important In The Formation Of The Boulder Batholith?, Richard Marvin May 1950

Was Assimilation Important In The Formation Of The Boulder Batholith?, Richard Marvin

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Examination of a rock suite from the northern end of the Boulder batholith reveals that four of the eight criteria for assimilation as given by Grout are present. Thus, in the opinion of the writer, there is evidence and trends to signify assimilation, but no indication of the importance that it played in the formation of the Boulder batholith.


Basic Information In The Granitic Rocks Of The Boulder Batholith, Clifford G. Sherwin May 1941

Basic Information In The Granitic Rocks Of The Boulder Batholith, Clifford G. Sherwin

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Dark fine grained basic masses of rock are found in nearly every part of the Boulder Batholith, these commonly being referred to as inclusions, segregations, autoliths, and various other names. The origin, distribution, and composition of the dark inclusions form the basis for this report.


Geology Of The Tuxedo Mining District, R. W. Lawson, B. R. Tarrant, A. L. Gallagher May 1937

Geology Of The Tuxedo Mining District, R. W. Lawson, B. R. Tarrant, A. L. Gallagher

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Tuxedo mining district lies fifteen miles west of Butte on the south east end of Deer Lodge valley. Prospecting and mining has been carried on in this district for about 20 years. As a result many pits have been dug, several adits have been driven, and two or three shallow shafts have been sunk.


Contact Metamorphism In The Highlands, Frank Trask Jr. May 1936

Contact Metamorphism In The Highlands, Frank Trask Jr.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

On the southern margin of the Boulder Batholith, about twenty miles south of Butte in the Highland Mountains, there are many miles of contact between the igneous and sedi­mentary rocks. As two kinds of igneous rocks and many diff­erent kinds of sedimentary rock are present, it is an excell­ent place for the study of contact metamorphism.


Attempted Proofs Of The Differentiation Of Magmas By Syntexis, Clifford Wendel May 1935

Attempted Proofs Of The Differentiation Of Magmas By Syntexis, Clifford Wendel

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This investigation was an effort to obtain proof of the much disputed principle that most of the observed mag­netic differentiations have been due to the assimilation, or syntexis, of the intruded country rocks.


A Microscopic Study Of Some Volcanic Rocks In The Vicinity Of Butte, Evan Gustafson May 1933

A Microscopic Study Of Some Volcanic Rocks In The Vicinity Of Butte, Evan Gustafson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The rhyolite rocks in the vicinity of Big Butte present a very interesting, though complicated study. It seems that no extensive or conclusive work has ever been done upon these extrusives.

I have found that the rhyolites present a very interesting problem, especially microscopically, and that no doubt an intensive study along these lines will solve the problems concerning age relations of different flows and origin of the magma that produced the material for emanations.
