Some Investigations On Quantitative Measurement Of Amalgamation, Charles Moore Jun 1941

Some Investigations On Quantitative Measurement Of Amalgamation, Charles Moore

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Amalgamation is a process in which precious metals are collected by mercury. The exact way in which the mercury holds the other metals is not positively known. It is proba­ble that a series of intermetallic compounds form. Very little work has been done so far on the theory of amalgama­tion.


Some Chromite Deposits In Madison County, Montana, Russell H. W. Chadwick May 1941

Some Chromite Deposits In Madison County, Montana, Russell H. W. Chadwick

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Chromite occurs in Madison County, Montana, in two areas, one three miles southwest of Silver Star, the other five miles southeast of Sheridan. The ore bodies are small, lenticular masses surrounded by metamorphosed sedimentary rocks of the pre-Cambrian Cherry Creek series. The ore was deposited from the hydrothermal solutions which serpentinized the surrounding metamorphic host rocks.

Measurements Of The Magnetic Permeabilities Of The Iron-Manganese Alloy System Prepared By The Methods Of Powder Metallurgy, O. Cihad Onbulak

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Powder metallurgy is a branch of metallurgy which produces metallic compacts in their final forms by means of pressure and heat-treatment from the pow­ders. The products of powder metallurgy are being used in our daily lives quite often. For example, the tungsten wires in the electric bulbs to the silver-tin fillings of our teeth.


The Extraction Of Chromate Salts From Montana Chromite, Server Tasdemiroglu May 1941

The Extraction Of Chromate Salts From Montana Chromite, Server Tasdemiroglu

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In this thesis I have tried to determine the suit­able temperature, time and the amount of soda ash and lime needed for the calcining process. The leaching and purification tests were studied experimentally. The earlier process for making chromate from chromite was not the same as is used today. There­fore I have found it useful to put into this thesis the newest method for making chromate salts and their important uses.


An Experimental Investigation Of The Age Hardening Of Copper With Manganese Silicide, Ali Kozak May 1941

An Experimental Investigation Of The Age Hardening Of Copper With Manganese Silicide, Ali Kozak

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The subject of the thesis was based upon the theory of precipitation or age hardening of the copper by the compound formed by the Manganese and silicon present in the ternary Cu-Mn-Si alloy. The effect of the heat treat­ment to such an alloy was to be studied and the best aging time and temperature was to be determined.

Gas Analysis By Absorption, Albert D. Mcmahon May 1941

Gas Analysis By Absorption, Albert D. Mcmahon

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

There is practically only one method of gas analysis. This was worked out many years ago by Bunsen, Hempel, and Winkler and consists in the successive absorption with different chemicals of the various constituents of the gas. The only improvement to this method is the oxidation and combustion of different components of a mixture followed by absorption.

Relationships Of Manganese Minerals In The Butte District, Charles F. Parent

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The use of manganese in the steel industry as a deoxidizing and desulfidizing agent makes it a necessity in modern industry, while the various alloy steels using manganese for the quality of toughness are also indispensable. Manganese is also used in the manufacture of such various articles as battery cells, paints and glass.


Pegmatites In Southwestern Montana, Ora Rostad May 1941

Pegmatites In Southwestern Montana, Ora Rostad

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Little has been written on pegmatites in Montana except in conjunction with reports on mining districts. This subject was chosen as a senior thesis to see what facts could be ascertained re­garding pegmatites alone, and an attempt has been made by the writer to assemble all written material on pegmatites in southwestern Montana, and to study specimens from those that could be reached or from which specimens were available.


A Study Of The Concentration Of A Low-Grade Manganese Ore From The Ennis District, John B. Schuettenhelm May 1941

A Study Of The Concentration Of A Low-Grade Manganese Ore From The Ennis District, John B. Schuettenhelm

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of the investigation was to determine the most effective means of concentrating the manganese in the ore. The study was that of identification of the minerals present. This showed the presence of oxides of manganese and iron, and carbonates of calcium and manganese. Methods of investigation were planned to determined whether the ore could be concentrated effectively by gravity concentration methods. ­


A Study Of A Carbonaceous Gold Ore, James S. Huckaba Jan 1941

A Study Of A Carbonaceous Gold Ore, James S. Huckaba

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The presence of graphite in the ore of the Missouri-McKee Mine has made its treatment by the methods now used quite unsatisfactory. The study was undertaken to de­velop a new flow sheet which would give a high recovery and yet be economical enough to handle low grade material.
