The Effect Of The Fe2: Fe3 Ratio Upon The Current Efficiency In The Electrolysis Of A Copper Sulfate Solution Containing Iron Sulfate, Roy Macfarland Jun 1932

The Effect Of The Fe2: Fe3 Ratio Upon The Current Efficiency In The Electrolysis Of A Copper Sulfate Solution Containing Iron Sulfate, Roy Macfarland

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the treatment of copper ores by hydro-electro-metallurgical methods, not only is copper deposited, but other metals are also dissolved. In practice it has been found* that iron, under certain conditions, causes the copper to deposit on the cathode as a nonadherent precipitate and also that the iron in solution causes a great decrease in current efficiency, es­pecially when the electrolysis is conducted by operating with a higher current density at the cathode than at the anode.

The present investigation deals with the effects of the two valences of iron on the current efficiency and endeavors to determine whether ...


The Recovery Of Copper In Sulphide Ores By Roasting, Leaching, And Electrolysis, Jack S. Greenough Jun 1932

The Recovery Of Copper In Sulphide Ores By Roasting, Leaching, And Electrolysis, Jack S. Greenough

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Sulphide ores of copper are insoluble in dilute sulphuric acid leaching solutions, but a very high extraction can be obtained if the copper ore is in the oxidized condition. The problem is to convert the sulphide into the oxide form. This can be done by giving the sulphide ore an oxidizing-sulphatizing roast. Copper sulphate is soluble in water, so acid will be saved in the leaching process if copper sulphate is present. The iron in the copper sulphide ores is present as pyrite, or in combinations as bornite, or chalcopyrite.


Some Notes On The Composition Of "Copper Pitch", Richard R. Matthew Jun 1932

Some Notes On The Composition Of "Copper Pitch", Richard R. Matthew

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A supply of so-called "copper pitch" ore was received by the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology in response to a request by them from a resident of Kalispell, who had previously sent a specimen to the Bureau for a mineralogical analysis.

Since this material was little known and had apparently received but little study under a reflec­ting microscope, it was thought that such a study might throw some light on the mineralogical and chemical composition of the material.


The Aplitic Body Bordering Roosevelt Drive South Of Butte, Montana, Edward B. Trueworthy Jr. Jun 1932

The Aplitic Body Bordering Roosevelt Drive South Of Butte, Montana, Edward B. Trueworthy Jr.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The area studied consists of a large body of aplite situated 12 miles south of Butte. It extends eastward almost to the Butte-Pipestone road, southward to Lime Kiln Hill and westward a distance of 3000 feet.

The petrographic work was supplemented by a map of the area. Special attention was given to those frequent "Limonite Specks" found in the aplite.


Joint Planes In The Rhyolites Of The Butte District, Montana, John B. Hopkins Jun 1932

Joint Planes In The Rhyolites Of The Butte District, Montana, John B. Hopkins

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The problem herein discussed deals with the pointing planes found in the area of rhyolite located in the northwestern portion of the Butte District. The question to be determined was whether or not the pointing planes in the rhyolites could be class­ified with the Butte Ore fissure systems.


A Bentonite Deposit Near Warm Springs, Montana, R. H. Larson Jun 1932

A Bentonite Deposit Near Warm Springs, Montana, R. H. Larson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This report deals with a bentonite deposit recently developed, approximately seven miles northeast of Warm Springs, Montana. A group of claims have been staked on the deposit and are owned by the Lincoln Mining Company of Anaconda, Montana. The company also has several claims prospected for silver one mile from its present site of operations, but the silver prospects have failed to produce. The bentonite deposit was discovered incidentally during the course of other development work, and at present two adits have been driven into the side of a mountain, each crosscutting a vein-like mass of bentonite varying from two ...


The Effect Of Hydrogen Overvoltage On The Electrolytic Deposition Of Zinc, John M. Munzenrider, Kenneth O. Sweeney May 1932

The Effect Of Hydrogen Overvoltage On The Electrolytic Deposition Of Zinc, John M. Munzenrider, Kenneth O. Sweeney

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the deposition of metallic zinc by electro­lysis from neutral or acid solution, little difficulty is experienced provided certain impurities are absent from the electrolyte. The use of the process has long been considered as a potential source, patents on the process having been issued as early as 1880. However, the early experimenters failed to realize the importance of impurities in the electrolyte, and for this reason, the process suffered several severe setbacks when commercial plants were built.


The Electrolytic Deposition Of Chromium Upon Aluminum, E. Fults, L. D. Voerge May 1932

The Electrolytic Deposition Of Chromium Upon Aluminum, E. Fults, L. D. Voerge

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose or this investigation is primarily to determine the best conditions for plating chromium on aluminum. The work was carried out with the hope of obtaining coherent deposits, and of determin­ing the conditions under which such deposits may be duplicated.
