Geology And Geological Structure Of The Alberta And Saskatchewan Plains, William E. Topley Jun 1948

Geology And Geological Structure Of The Alberta And Saskatchewan Plains, William E. Topley

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Alberta, responsible for ninety per cent of Canada's output, had, by 1947 entered into her fifth year of production decline. Only ten per cent of Canada's oil requirements were secured from home fields. Ninety per cent had to be imported, mainly from the United States. How long could imports be maintained on present levels? During the year, the United States had started rationing; in one sector of its domain. Would this become general? If so, what was the answer for Canada?


The Fort Union Formation Of Montana And Adjacent Areas, Charles Christman May 1948

The Fort Union Formation Of Montana And Adjacent Areas, Charles Christman

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Fort Union formation is one of the most import­ant and best known geologic formations of the northern Great Plains, and is found lying almost horizontal at the surface over large areas in this region.

Manganese Oxide Deposits Near Butte And Development Since 1942, Emmett M. Gilmore

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The manganese minerals occur in the peripheral zone of the Butte district with quartz in veins, which at depth contain galena and sphalerite closely associated with silver-bearing minerals. The manganese oxides are all oxidation products formed by weathering of primary rhodochrosite or rhodonite.


Concentration Of Manganese Dioxide From Philipsburg, Montana, W. M. Mcauliffe May 1948

Concentration Of Manganese Dioxide From Philipsburg, Montana, W. M. Mcauliffe

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Imports of manganese ore probably supply a major proportion of the needs of the United States. Domestic production is reported to be higher than pre-war levels, but does not equal that of the peak production year of 1943. In 1946, the Anaconda Copper Mining Company ac­counted for 90 percent of the total shipments of mangan­ese nodules, and this company is the largest producer of domestic metallurgical ore in the United States.


A Discussion Of The Geology And An Isopach Map Of The Pennsylvanian System In Wyoming And Adjacent Areas, B. R. Alto May 1948

A Discussion Of The Geology And An Isopach Map Of The Pennsylvanian System In Wyoming And Adjacent Areas, B. R. Alto

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Pennsylvanian strata in Wyoming and adjacent areas have been the subject of much work and discussion. Most of the work has been due to the economic importance of the system as an oil producer in this region. Oil production from strata of Pennsylvanian age is rather recent history; and therefore, much of the available information is local­ized and incomplete.


Sandstones Of The Lance And Fort Union Formations, Alan G. Conner May 1948

Sandstones Of The Lance And Fort Union Formations, Alan G. Conner

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Fort Union and Lance formations are widespread terrestrial sediments exposed in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Canada. Their stratigraphic position, especially that of the Lance, has long been in doubt, and has provoked much controversy among geologists.


The Geology And Mineral Deposits Of British Columbia, John A. Downing May 1948

Flotation Concentration Of A Montana Lead-Zinc-Silver-Ore, Grover W. Gregson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Mike Horse mine, in the Huddelston mining district, is fifty-two miles northwest of Helena, Montana. The mine was discovered in 1898 by Joseph Heitmiller. There was only minor production from the date of discovery until 1915; the main drawback being lack of good road.


The Continuous Electrodeposition Of Manganese, Joseph W. Joyce May 1948

The Continuous Electrodeposition Of Manganese, Joseph W. Joyce

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The object of this research was to produce a workable electrolytic cell for the continuous deposition of manganese from aqueous sulphate solutions and determine the critical factors in its oper­ation.


The Physiographic History Of Western Montana And Northwestern Idaho, John R. Kavanagh May 1948

The Physiographic History Of Western Montana And Northwestern Idaho, John R. Kavanagh

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Millions of years of physiographic changes have conditioned us to the fact that our present drainage is a temporary feature. Rivers once flowing opposite to their present direction is not an unusual condition for physiographers to suggest.


An Isopach Map And A Discussion Of The Permian In Wyoming And Adjacent Areas, Willard Leskela May 1948

An Isopach Map And A Discussion Of The Permian In Wyoming And Adjacent Areas, Willard Leskela

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The accelerated post-war demand for petroleum products with resultant high prices and dwindling reserves has spurred producers to an extensive search for new fields and for ad­ditional production in known fields. Exploration and discov­ery is dependent on the collection and correlation of vast amounts of data both in the field and that found in liter­ature.


Roasting And Leaching Of Montana Chromite, Jerry D. Murphy May 1948

Roasting And Leaching Of Montana Chromite, Jerry D. Murphy

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The United States, although the leading consumer of chromite, depends almost entirely on imports for its supply. Domestic production of chromite is limited, because high-grade imported ore is plentiful and inexpensive in normal times. There are several large deposits of chromite in the United States, representing millions of tons of low grade ore. These deposits form a strategic reserve that must be used in time of national emergency.


A Mineral Dressing Study Of The U.S. Grant Ore, John Emmett Murphy May 1948

A Mineral Dressing Study Of The U.S. Grant Ore, John Emmett Murphy

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This investigation concerns the development of a satis­factory method or extracting or concentrating gold and silver from the ores of the U. S. Grant Mine. The choice between applying an extractive process and one by which the valuable mineral constituents are concentrated depends on more than one factor.


Sulfatizing Roasting Of A Copper Sulfide Ore, Walter D. Finnegan May 1948

Sulfatizing Roasting Of A Copper Sulfide Ore, Walter D. Finnegan

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

At present copper sulfide ores are recovered by pyrometallurgical processes. While the recovery of cop­per from sulfide ores by hydrometallurgical means has long been considered attractive, the impurities, low re­covery and mechanical difficulties have kept this process from becoming commercial.


Karst Kamp Asbestos Deposits Gallatin County, Montana, Thomas L. Wilson May 1948

Karst Kamp Asbestos Deposits Gallatin County, Montana, Thomas L. Wilson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Karst Kamp, a southwestern Montana recreation re­sort, is 32 road miles south of Bozeman on the east bank of the Gallatin River in a narrow V-shaped valley flanked on the west by the rugged Madison mountain range and on the east by the equally rough Gallatin range. The asbestos deposit itself lies approximate­ly one-half mile northwest of the ranch on a heavily timbered "Al­pine-like" slope nearly 1200 feet above the floor of the valley.


Geology Of The Lost Creek-Modesty Creek Area Deerlodge County, Montana, Howard B. Nickelson, Robert L. Pott May 1948

Geology Of The Lost Creek-Modesty Creek Area Deerlodge County, Montana, Howard B. Nickelson, Robert L. Pott

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In 1915 the United States Geological Survey published a folio by Calkins and Emmons on the geology of the Philipsburg Quadrangle, which ad­joins the area now under study to the west. Geology of this portion of Montana had not been mapped previously; consequently the purpose of this thesis is to make a geological reconnais­sance of the stratigraphy and structure of the area.


Geology Of Montana, Stanley G. Olson May 1948

Geology Of Montana, Stanley G. Olson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A vast amount of information has been published by many workers on particular features of the geology of the state of Montana, as well as on local geology of many smaller divi­sions. However, a satisfactory summary of the geology in general, which would include all phases of geology as they apply to the greater area of the entire state, has not been published.


A Study Of The Action Of Various Energizers In The Carburization Of Steel, William N. Warren May 1948

A Study Of The Action Of Various Energizers In The Carburization Of Steel, William N. Warren

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The object of casehardening is to produce articles of steel having a tough or ductile interior and a hard sur­face. Quenching produces a surface somewhat harder than the interior, but in order to obtain a high surface hard­ness, the percentage of alloying elements in the steel must be raised to such an extent that the core or central por­tion becomes hard and brittle also.


Leaching Of Low Grade Rhodochrosite, E. D. King May 1948

Leaching Of Low Grade Rhodochrosite, E. D. King

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Although there are many uses for manganese today, none of them approaches its importance as a deoxidizing agent in the manufac­ture of steels. Without manganese the steelmaking in­dustry would be very seriously handicapped. The metal­lurgy of manganese has been developed around the high-grade ores, and unfortunately, our reserves of high-grade ores are very limited.


A Study Of The Diffusion Of Electroplated Coatings In The Solid State., Michael R. Writt May 1948

A Study Of The Diffusion Of Electroplated Coatings In The Solid State., Michael R. Writt

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The term diffusion means an equalization or homogenization of diverse materials. Specifically ap­plied to metals, diffusion is the interchange of atoms. It is, in effect, an invasion of one crystal lattice by the atoms of one or more other crystal lattices. Therefore, the study of diffusion must involve the geometry and physics of crystal lattices as well as their energies.


Geology And Ore Deposits Of The Salt Chuck-Rush And Brown Mine Area Prince Of Wales Island, Alaska, Judson H. Whitman May 1948

Geology And Ore Deposits Of The Salt Chuck-Rush And Brown Mine Area Prince Of Wales Island, Alaska, Judson H. Whitman

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Salt Chuck, Rush and Brown, and adjacent mines and claims form an area of approximately 15 square miles near the head of Kasaan Bay about 10 miles northwest of the village of Kasaan on Prince of Wales Island in southeastern Alaska. It is an area of moderate relief in which the hills rise from the water’s edge to heights of some 500 feet. Most of the area is covered with dense vegetation and muskeg.


A Study Of The Physical Properties Of Low Tin Solders, Cornelius P. Dwyer Apr 1948

A Study Of The Physical Properties Of Low Tin Solders, Cornelius P. Dwyer

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In 1947, out of the 100,000 long tons of tin con­sumed in the United States, 25,000 tons went into solder. Tin plate took 39,000 tons while babbit, bronze and coll­apsible tubes accounted for approximately 17,000 tons. Solder ranked second to tin plate and required more than the next three major uses combined.


The Effect Of Manganese And Magnesium On The Hardening Of Copper-Aluminum Alloys, Robert M. Hansen Apr 1948

The Effect Of Manganese And Magnesium On The Hardening Of Copper-Aluminum Alloys, Robert M. Hansen

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

During recent years, duralumin and all aluminum alloys have been made the object of much discussion regarding their hardening mechanism. The commercial success of nearly all of the alloys of aluminum and mag­nesium is dependent on their ability to age or precipitation harden.


An Investigation Of Age-Hardening In A Commercial Copper-Beryllium Alloy, Terry Horne Apr 1948

An Investigation Of Age-Hardening In A Commercial Copper-Beryllium Alloy, Terry Horne

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This investigation is concerned with the age-hardening process as exemplified by the aging of a commercial Cu-Be alloy and, in particular, with this pro­cess as determined by X-ray methods. The amount of infor­mation available on age-hardening of commercial alloys is scanty and what information there is, is inaccurate.


An Investigation Of The Anodic Oxidation Of Aluminum In A Sulfuric Acid Electrolyte, William D. Michaely Apr 1948

An Investigation Of The Anodic Oxidation Of Aluminum In A Sulfuric Acid Electrolyte, William D. Michaely

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

When aluminum is allowed to stand in air or is heated in air, a thin oxide film is produced on the metal. If aluminum is made the anode in a suitable electrolyte and a current applied, a coating is obtained which is similar to that produced in air, but may be effected much quicker. This film is thicker, harder, more resistant to corrosion and abrasion, and more adhesive than the natural oxide. The film is porous and makes an excellent adsorptive for dyes and pigments.


Oxygen Enriched Atmosphere Roasting, Clarence Wells Jr Apr 1948

Oxygen Enriched Atmosphere Roasting, Clarence Wells Jr

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The possible benefits of oxygen enriched atmosphere roasting have been known to metallurgists for many years, but only since the development of equipment and processes to produce cheap oxygen in very large amounts has much ser­ious consideration been given this matter.


The Electrodeposition Of Iron-Manganese Alloys, Kenneth H. Larson Apr 1948

The Electrodeposition Of Iron-Manganese Alloys, Kenneth H. Larson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Although the alteration of properties resulting from the alloying of metals in their usual commercial forms has been extensively investigated, the field of electrodeposition of alloys is believed generally not to have received the atten­tion that it merits.


Geology Of Upper Bear Gulch And Dry Boulder Creek Area Madison County, Montana, Norman King Apr 1948

Geology Of Upper Bear Gulch And Dry Boulder Creek Area Madison County, Montana, Norman King

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Potential gold mines lie high among the rugged peaks of the Tobacco Root Mountains of southwestern Montana. This is a region where little geologic work has been done, though extensive mine operations have been carried on, and valuable ore has been shipped.

A Preliminary Study Of The Benefication Of Montana Kyanite, Donald Paul Mccarthy

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This investigation is a preliminary study of the beneficiation of Montana kyanite, and while preliminary in degree the information gained may serve as a guide for the eventual exploitation of this Montana resource.


Foraminifera From Pleistocene Beds Near San Pedro, California, R. F. Mitchell Apr 1948

Foraminifera From Pleistocene Beds Near San Pedro, California, R. F. Mitchell

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The age of rocks found in drill cores, and consequently the depths to possible oil-bearing formations has in many localities been determined by micro-paleontologic studies during the past three decades. Of the different micro-fossils used in this work, foraminifera have been studied most, are the best described, and hence, by far the most helpful.
