Helena And Ennis Talc Deposits, Howard N. Anderson May 1942

Helena And Ennis Talc Deposits, Howard N. Anderson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this report is to collect geologic data concerning two Montana talc occurrences at Helena and Ennis and to offer some explanation as to their origin. The two deposits cited are in somewhat similar lithologic settings and both possess the same mineralogical and structural features. Because of this similarity only the Helena deposit is covered in detail.

An Experimental Investigation Of The Age Hardening Of Nickel With Boron, Willard M. Boam May 1942

An Experimental Investigation Of The Age Hardening Of Nickel With Boron, Willard M. Boam

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Since 1911, at which time, the age hardening phenomenon of duralumin was discovered by Film, much re­search has been carried on investigating the various alloy systems. The successful application of age hardening to the copper aluminum system (duralumin) has indicated the possibility of hardening practically all the metals in the same way.


The Velocity Of Falling Particles In A Liquid Medium, Elliott Coldwater May 1942

The Velocity Of Falling Particles In A Liquid Medium, Elliott Coldwater

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The investigation was prompted by the fact that there seemed to be some discrepancy between the results published by Richards,and the empirical figures used in classification and in gravity concentration. Further, the work of Richards was restricted to quartz and galena whereas this study also includes pyrite and calcite.


The Recovery Of Zinc From Butte Mine Waters, Edmond M. Fern May 1942

The Recovery Of Zinc From Butte Mine Waters, Edmond M. Fern

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Very little work has been done towards the recovery of zinc from mine water because the zinc content of the water is generally low. As different from copper, which can very easily be replaced by iron in any of its solutions, zinc is very high up in the electro-chemical series and so the few metals above zinc, most of which are rare and hence expensive, cannot be used to replace zinc from its solution.

Polishing Mineral Specimens By The Use Of An Optical Polishing Machine, Wilbur J. Guay

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The problem in this investigation was to determine if mineral specimens mounted in bakelite, or lucite, could be polished for microscopic examination by the use of an optical polishing machine, and if this method would cut down the length of time required to polish specimens by the methods now in use.

Mineralogy And Genesis Of The Vermiculite Deposits At Libby, Montana, Raymond Kujawa May 1942

Mineralogy And Genesis Of The Vermiculite Deposits At Libby, Montana, Raymond Kujawa

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The problem considered in this report is one of the mineralogy and mode of formation of the extremely pure, large bodies of vermiculite. Mineralogically the ultrabasic intrusive, with which the economic mineral is associated, presents an array of rather unusual minerals. The determination of these minerals, their associations, and the sequence of alteration that lead to the formation of the vermiculite bodies, constitutes the problem.

Insoluble Residues Of The Lower Mississippian Limestones Of The Madison Group, Fred G. Lines May 1942

Insoluble Residues Of The Lower Mississippian Limestones Of The Madison Group, Fred G. Lines

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The correlation of non-fossiliferous drill samples is one of the difficult problems that is en­countered in sub-surface stratigraphy. In order to truly correlate a formation, it must have some dis tinctive features and have an areal persistence of these features. These requirements are probably met best by limestone.

Porosity And Oil Absorption Properties Of Metal Compacts Of Copper - Tin - Graphite, Benjamin F. Mills

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Powder metallurgy, the most recent innovation in met­allurgical process, is not a new art; although not until recently did it become a matter of general interest, this being due not only to the products formed but also to the possibilities of future developments. The manufacture and application of metal powders is now beginning to take a position as a recognized part of the science of metallurgy.


An Investigation Of The Age-Hardening Of Copper With Nickel-Boron Compounds, Robert I. Moreen May 1942

An Investigation Of The Age-Hardening Of Copper With Nickel-Boron Compounds, Robert I. Moreen

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Boron is an element whose metallurgical possibil­ities have never been fully investigated. The principal reason for this fact seems to lie in the difficulties encountered in preparing elemental boron and its various intermetallic compounds.

The Determination Of Aluminum In The Presence Of Manganese And Iron By The Use Of A Mercury Cathode, William R. Opie

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Since 1880, when Wolcott Gibbs made the suggestion that mercury could be used as a cathode in gravimetric electroanalysis, many articles have appeared in literature either criticizing the method or citing successful results which have been obtained by it.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

With an eye to the future development of its re­sources, the large deposits of low-grade manganese ore within Montana's boundaries show great promise of developing an important industry. With the pre­sent war demands and the possibility of a future mar­ket it is essential that work expended to utilize this important mineral.

An Investigation Into The Recovery Of Indium From Fume Residue, Emery J. Turner May 1942

An Investigation Into The Recovery Of Indium From Fume Residue, Emery J. Turner

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Several months were required to produce a single gram of indium. Consequently, the industrial history of the metal is extremely short. In view of the unique properties that indium has demonstrated in this short period, it is probable that indium is still in its early stage of development. However, the commer­cial applications of the metal are well established and indium is now produced on a commercial scale. It is obtainable as the metal or in solution for electroplat­ing.


The Effects Of Some Percentages Of Nickel On The Annealing Of Cartridge Brass, A. Edward Zezula May 1942

The Effects Of Some Percentages Of Nickel On The Annealing Of Cartridge Brass, A. Edward Zezula

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The most important element in the alloying of steels, has also been used quite extensively as a third constituent in copper-zinc alloys. The chief characteristics of nickel which make it desirable as an alloying element are its toughness, high strength, and resistance to corrosion.

Some Leaching Characteristics Of The Butte Rhodochrosite, W. L. Slosson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

With the increasing importance of manganese in the metallurgical fields of today and tomorrow, ex­tensive work along the lines of its successful ex­ploitation has been accomplished by many investiga­tors. Since tie current world situation has shut off most of our supply of high-grade manganese ores from foreign sources, the low-grade domestic deposits have entered the fields of investigation very rapidly.


Chromite Deposits Near Red Lodge And Silver Star, Montana, Edmond F. Smigel Apr 1942

Chromite Deposits Near Red Lodge And Silver Star, Montana, Edmond F. Smigel

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Red Lodge and Silver Star chromite deposits of Montana have stimulated much interest during periods of war. The Red Lodge deposit is 25 miles southwest of Red Lodge which is also the nearest railroad point. Several workings are scattered throughout the area, exposing lense-like ore bodies averaging 33% chrome oxide. Silver Star is a much smaller deposit 5 miles west of Silver Star, Montana, which is its nearest rail­road point. Lenses of chromite are exposed by pits and trench­es, which average approximately 36% chromic oxide.

It is known that there are large deposits of chromium ore in Stillwater and Carbon Counties in South-Central Montana. The late James F. Kemp of Columbia University, stated in 1928, that these were the largest chromium deposits in the United States and probably in the world, although they were not considered of commercial grade as compared with foreign ores.
