The Elkhorn Mine Of Jefferson County, Montana, David D. Walker Jun 1951

The Elkhorn Mine Of Jefferson County, Montana, David D. Walker

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In 1901, after yielding metals valued in excess of five million dollars, it was considered worked out. Since that time the mine has passed through the hands of several own­ers, none of whom have failed to realize a profit from it. Although at no time since its zenith did it ever regain its once great production, it did provide a livelihood for those who worked it. Now with the American Smelting and Refining Company interested in it, perhaps it will once again become an important producer.


The Lilly Mine Of Powell County, Montana, Wilbur Aikin May 1950

The Lilly Mine Of Powell County, Montana, Wilbur Aikin

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

For many years the Elliston District, of Powell County has been a minor producer of gold, lead, zinc, and silver. Although never among the largest producing districts of the state, it has with the exception of the war years supplied a notable tonnage of ore to the neighboring mills ever since the first placer and lode claims were located there during the late eighteen hundreds.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Purpose of this thesis was to investigate the possibility of concentrating scheelite from Wilfley table gold concentrates from the mill of the Jardine Mining Company; and to determine whether such concentration is economically feasible and the product of sufficiently high grade to meet commercial specifications for such a product.


The Investigation Of Different Variables In The Assaying Of Silver Cyanide Solution, Warren M. Mahan May 1940

The Investigation Of Different Variables In The Assaying Of Silver Cyanide Solution, Warren M. Mahan

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The assaying of gold and silver cyanide solutions is by no means new. The first method of analysis which is given in the literature is an evaporation method by S. B. Christy in 1896. However, the fire assaying of gold and silver dates further back than this. There is a method of fire assaying for gold and silver given in literature as early as 1556 in Georgius, Agricola’s De Re Metallica book.


The Geology And Mineralogy Of The Independence Mining District, Alan Kuhlman May 1940

A hydrometallurgical process for the recovery of copper from flotation concentrates has long been con­sidered an attractive possibility. The object of such a method is to produce electrolytic copper without resorting to expensive matte smelting and converting.


A Study Of The Effect Of Oxygen On The Rate Of Dissolution Of Gold In Cyanide Solutions., John A. Cook May 1936

A Study Of The Effect Of Oxygen On The Rate Of Dissolution Of Gold In Cyanide Solutions., John A. Cook

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The accepted chemical reactions in the dissolution of gold by cyanide solutions require the presence of gold, cyanide, water, and oxygen. The importance of dissolved oxygen in cyanide solutions as a factor is recognized by those familiar with cyanidation. Manufacturers of cyanidation equipment realize the necessity of oxygen, as shown by the appliances they have developed which are attached to the agitators in order to saturate the cyanide solutions with air.

An Investigation Of The Properties Of Some Of The White Metal Alloys, William James Walsh Jr.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Although there is no standardized list of alloys, most investigators have, to avoid confusion, concurred in at least grouping the metals under several general heads. Precious metals: gold, silver and the platinum group; the light metals: aluminum and magnesium; the non-ferrous metals (excluding all steels and iron-base alloys); and the antifriction metals.


Leaching Copper Minerals In The Butte District, Kenneth C. Bellows May 1933

Leaching Copper Minerals In The Butte District, Kenneth C. Bellows

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The history of mining in Butte is woven about three of our principal metals. The gold placers first attracted the attention of miners in 1863, and reached their peak production in 1867. Silver was the second metal mined, and this operation required the erection of large mills with a consequent increase in mining activity that made the district a prominent producer. Although the presence of copper in the silver ore had been known, the credit for the first development of the copper veins is due Senator W. A. Clark. The original Colusa, Mining Chief, and Gambetta claims were developed to ...
