The Control Of The Grain Size Of Tin., Robert D. Macdonald May 1937

The Control Of The Grain Size Of Tin., Robert D. Macdonald

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The tin alloys of tellurium are extremely hard and have very great tensile strength. It was thought that the reduction of the rate of grain growth of tin with the addition of tellurium accompanied this hardening and strengthening and such way found to be true.


The Inhibitory Effects Of Carbonaceous Materials On The Cyaniding Of Gold Ores., David Currie Jr. May 1937

The Inhibitory Effects Of Carbonaceous Materials On The Cyaniding Of Gold Ores., David Currie Jr.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Carbon and carbonaceous material have been known to have a deleterious effect upon the cyanidation of gold and silver ores since the very beginning of the process. Organic matter is a common source of impu­rities in cyanide solution, its reducing effect being notorious.


The Electrical Conductivity Of The Copper-Aluminum Alloys., William W. Hintalla May 1937

The Electrical Conductivity Of The Copper-Aluminum Alloys., William W. Hintalla

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Among the many aluminum alloys which have been studied are the binary copper-aluminum alloys. These have proven to be among the most useful of the alumi­num alloys thus far worked upon.


The Electroplating Of Cadmium From Sulfate Solutions, Lewis S. Prater May 1937

The Electroplating Of Cadmium From Sulfate Solutions, Lewis S. Prater

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

It has been proven that cadmium forms a very satisfactory plate on steel, which has to withstand severe corrosion, especially the corrosion of sea water and spray. The metal is now successfully plated electrolytically from cyanide solutions, but wherever work is carried on with cyanide, there is great danger of poisoning to the workers.


The Effect Of Temperature On The Rate Of Dissolution Of Gold In Cyanide Solutions Which Have A Constant Oxygen Content., Robert Currie May 1937

The Effect Of Temperature On The Rate Of Dissolution Of Gold In Cyanide Solutions Which Have A Constant Oxygen Content., Robert Currie

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Since the development of cyanidation into a highly efficient process for treating gold ores, many papers have been written on its various aspects. Although, there has been much work done on it, the chemistry of the reaction is not yet completely understood.


The Presence Of Rhenium In Montana Manganese Ores., Henry E. Swanson May 1937

The Presence Of Rhenium In Montana Manganese Ores., Henry E. Swanson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Rhenium properties offer many interesting possibilities, therefore any ores containing rhenium would be of considerable value. Its close relationship to manganese in the periodic table led to the belief that manganese ores would be an excellent place to search for the metal. Investigation of the literature of rhenium revealed that no ore was known to contain more than 0.001 per cent of rhenium.


The Electrowinning Of Copper From Roasted Sulphides, Thomas B. Linn May 1937

The Electrowinning Of Copper From Roasted Sulphides, Thomas B. Linn

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

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.


Electrolytic Recovery Of Copper And Zinc From Brass, D. H. Swank May 1937

Electrolytic Recovery Of Copper And Zinc From Brass, D. H. Swank

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this research was to continue the work of Thomas Parker, who worked on the recovery of copper and zinc from brass during the school year l934 - 1935. Since there is such a wide variety of brasses made with usually a third alloying constituent, remelt­ed scrap is suitable only for castings of wide tolerance in specifications.


The Deposition Of Monomolecular Films., Albert Wilbur Schlechten May 1937

The Deposition Of Monomolecular Films., Albert Wilbur Schlechten

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The formation of monomolecular films is possible because of the action of the heteropolar molecules of certain fatty acids, especially stearic. Under the proper conditions the acid will spread out until a monomolecular film is formed.


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.
