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.


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.


Geology And Mines Of The Upper Blackfoot Valley, Montana, Thomas K. Shea Jun 1947

Geology And Mines Of The Upper Blackfoot Valley, Montana, Thomas K. Shea

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purchase and continued operation of the Mike Horse mine in the Heddleston district, by the American Smelting and Re­fining Company, gives the Blackfoot Valley a renewed promise of a prosperous future in its role as a mining district. In the past, large amounts of placer gold were recovered from the gulches of the area, however, because of the transporta­tion facilities, only the upper portions of a few lodes were exploited by the early miners.


Fluorite Near Silver Bow, Montana, Charles V. Campbell Feb 1944

Fluorite Near Silver Bow, Montana, Charles V. Campbell

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The wartime demand for fluorspar has caused renewed interest in fluorite deposits. Near Silver Bow, Montana, a deposit of massive, coarsely crystalline fluorspar, which has not been described in the literature, has attracted the atten­tion of the United States Geological Survey.

The Anodic Oxidation Of Vanadium In Phosphoric Acid Solution, Ben H. Alexander

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this thesis was to analyze the possibility of recovering the vanadium in the phosphoric acid by anodic oxidation in an electrolytic cell. This problem allowed not only the possibility of improving a commercial operation, but a study of the functioning of an interesting and very important phenomena.


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.


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.


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.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In metallurgical practice today some of the relatively rare metal Indium is recovered as a by-product from the ores of other metals. Indium is a soft, silvery—white metal belonging to the third group of the periodic classification. It is situated just above tin in the electrochemical series.


The Age Hardening Of Copper With Manganese Silicide., Gordon A. Davis May 1939

The Age Hardening Of Copper With Manganese Silicide., Gordon A. Davis

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The increase in hardness is attributed to the manganese silicide being precipitated from solid solution and deposited between crystal planes. The subsequent softening which occurs on prolonging the period of reheating is believed to be due to an agglomeration of the dispersed hardening agent.


Effect Of Impurities Upon Current Efficiency In The Electrolysis Of Zinc Sulphate Solution, Robert Jess Smith May 1933

Effect Of Impurities Upon Current Efficiency In The Electrolysis Of Zinc Sulphate Solution, Robert Jess Smith

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

There are many elements which are detrimental to the current efficiency in the electrolysis of zinc sulphate solution. Fortunately the majority of these elements are easily removed in the purification process and cause no further trouble. The elements that are likely to cause trouble in ordinary plant operations are antimony, arsenic, cobalt, nickel, manganese and germanium. The following tests were made to determine the mutual effect on the current efficiency when several of the impurities were present in the electrolyte.


The Effect Of Hydrogen Overvoltage On The Electrolytic Deposition Of Zinc, John M. Munzenrider, Kenneth O. Sweeney May 1932

The Effect Of Hydrogen Overvoltage On The Electrolytic Deposition Of Zinc, John M. Munzenrider, Kenneth O. Sweeney

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the deposition of metallic zinc by electro­lysis from neutral or acid solution, little difficulty is experienced provided certain impurities are absent from the electrolyte. The use of the process has long been considered as a potential source, patents on the process having been issued as early as 1880. However, the early experimenters failed to realize the importance of impurities in the electrolyte, and for this reason, the process suffered several severe setbacks when commercial plants were built.
