Date: 1913
Creator: Lord, N. W.
Description: From Introduction: "This volume contains the descriptions of the samples whose analyses are published in the preceding volume, Part I of this bulletin.

Coal-Mine Accidents in the United States and Foreign Countries

Coal-Mine Accidents in the United States and Foreign Countries

Date: 1913
Creator: Horton, Frederick W.
Description: From Introduction: "The lack of comparable and accurate statistics of coal-mine accidents in the united States as a whole led the Bureau of Mines in 1911 to undertake the collection of such data. The mining departments of the leading foreign coal-producing countries have long taken cognizance of the importance of statistics. The bureau feels that in presenting the tables embodied in this report it is offering the and comparable statistics of coal-min accidents for the country as a whole that have ever been published."

The Commercial Trend of the Producer-Gas Power Plant in the United States

Date: 1913
Creator: Fernald, R. H.
Description: From Introduction: "In investigating general problems that relate to the fuel resources of this country, and in testing fuels belonging to or for the use of the Government, the Bureau of Mines has given considerable attention to the efficiency and economic value of producer-gas power plants. This feeling of commercial decadence has become so general that the facts gleaned from an inspection of the summaries and charts presented in this bulletin will undoubtedly surprise those who have regarded the immediate downfall of the producer as inevitable."

Fuel-Briquetting Investigations, July, 1904, to July, 1912

Fuel-Briquetting Investigations, July, 1904, to July, 1912

Date: September 1913
Creator: Wright, C. L.
Description: Report discussing a series of fuel-testing investigations that U.S. Geological Survey began in 1904 for the purpose of analyzing and testing the coals and lignites in the United States in order to determine their fuel values and the most efficient methods of utilizing them for different purposes. Types of tests undertaken included chemical analyses, steaming tests, gas-producer tests, briquetting tests, coking tests, and washing tests of samples collected from the various coals fields of the country. Bulletins presenting the results of these investigations have been periodically published but as supply has run out, the Bureau of Mines has decided to compile the most important facts of these bulletins in one volume along with the results of all other briquetting investigatins undertaken by the government from July 1, 1904, to July 1, 1912.
