At the time that this was written, technical intelligence was intelligence about foreign weapons and equipment and about organizations in foreign armies analogous to the technical services. The modern US Army vision of the technical intelligence developed during World War II. The army technical services became responsible for technical intelligence. The technical services were bureaus which supplied weapons, equipment, and services to the army, managed the careers of officers in a particular branch, trained specialists, and organized and trained special purpose military units. There were a number of technical services including the Chemical Warfare Service, the Medical Department, the Ordnance ...


A Study Of The Differential Seperation Of Galena And Sphalerite, Wilfred E. Nagel Jun 1949

A Study Of The Differential Seperation Of Galena And Sphalerite, Wilfred E. Nagel

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The smelting of complex lead ores is a difficult operation, especially when they contain considerable amounts of iron and zinc. When these ores are smelted, all of the zinc, which is valuable and well worth recovering, goes into the slag. With the advent of the flotation processes, and the ability of these processes to concentrate the lead and zinc minerals into separate products, the smelting of complex lead ores was to a great extent simplified.


The Christensen Sillimanite Deposit Southeast Of Dillon, Montana, Everett O. Bracken Jun 1949

The Christensen Sillimanite Deposit Southeast Of Dillon, Montana, Everett O. Bracken

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The minerals sillimanite, kyanite, andalusite, dumortierite, and topaz comprise a group of minerals whose high alumina content and physical properties are particularly desirable in the manufacture of refractory products. Sillimanite is the least plentiful of the minerals of this group, and for this reason it is not used extensively at the present time. However, it would be very desirable to the refractory industry if a suitable domestic source of supply could be established.

Application Of The Electric Furnace To The Melting Of Cathode Copper At The Tacoma Smelter, Alvin H. Nelson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the field of copper metallurgy, the major chang­es effected in the original metallurgical scheme have been based largely upon the lowering in grade of copper ores, and the more particular demands of the fabricators of the metal. The former trend fostered the development of mineral beneficiation, which in turn caused the con­version from blast furnace to reverberatory furnace smelting.

The Casting Of Anodes For The Series System Of Electrolytic Copper Refining, Robert R. Kupfer

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The electrolytic refining process, while usually considered an auxiliary process used in conjunction with pyrometallurgical extraction, deserves a special niche in the complex metallurgy of copper. The development of electrolytic copper refining, for example, is largely responsible for the prominence of the electrical industry. Conversely, it could be stated that the electrical industry played an important part in the development of the copper industry.

It differs markedly within short distances in lithologic character and sequences, and the total thickness may exceed one mile in some places.


Comparative Studies Of Oklahoma And Missouri Granites With Special Attention To The Heavy Minerals Of The Oklahoma Granites, Russell B. Maurer May 1949

Comparative Studies Of Oklahoma And Missouri Granites With Special Attention To The Heavy Minerals Of The Oklahoma Granites, Russell B. Maurer

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

When examined petrographically the granites of Oklahoma show a marked similarity to the granites of South­eastern Missouri. The same heavy accessory mineral suites are present in the granites of both regions and include: fluorite, zircon, apatite, titanite and epidote. This similarity was further shown by the actual correlation of the heavy mineral suites by types, these types being, based on the heavy mineral distributions of the Missouri Granites.

An Isopach Map And Discussion Of Triassic Strata In Southern Montana And Wyoming, Robert G. Thompson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Oil and gas have been found in the Triassic strata of Wyoming. Although the Triassic has not as yet proven to be a large producing horizon it is very probable that ad­ditional oil will be found in Triassic strata in the future, and it is one of the goals at which oil well drillers aim their tools.


Foraminifera From The Colorado Shale Of North-Central Montana, Higbee G. Williams, David P. Wilson May 1949

Foraminifera From The Colorado Shale Of North-Central Montana, Higbee G. Williams, David P. Wilson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The use of foraminifera in the determination of geologic age, and in the correlation of strata, is one of the most important techniques in oil field stratigraphic studies. The petroleum industry in many regions relies on these microscopic life forms to determine the positions of oil-bearing horizons and to determine the tops of beds. In northern Montana the Colorado group of strata, a series of about 2,000 feet of dense, dark similar shales, is known to contain foraminifers.


Daibase Sill Comanche County, Oklahoma, Jean A. Hardesty May 1949

Daibase Sill Comanche County, Oklahoma, Jean A. Hardesty

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The mechanics of intrusion and the processes involved are becoming of more and more interest to con­temporary geologists, because most of our mineral deposits are associated with igneous intrusions, and unknown-outcropping deposits are thought to be a thing of the past. If, by studying these pro­cesses, we could understand why some igneous masses are barren, while others of similar composition carry economic mineral deposits, geological prospecting for hidden mineral concentration would see a new era.
