At its tenth regular session in 1913 the Utah Legislature provided
for the establishment of a metallurgical research department in
connection with the State school of mines of the University of Utah.
As stated in the act providing for this department (Laws of Utah,
1913, ch. 102, sec. 2, pp. 199-200), the purposes of this research
department have been to conduct experiments and research, either
alone or in cooperation with the Federal Bureau of Mines and other
agencies, with a view of finding ways and methods of profitably
treating low-grade ores, of obtaining other information that shall
have for its object the benefit of the mining industry and the utiliza-
tion and conservation of the mineral resources of the State, and to
publish and distribute bulletins and articles relating to the depart-
ment and its work.
This act became effective in July, 1913. In January, 1914, the
university made a working agreement with the Federal Bureau of
Mines. By the terms of this agreement the work of the metallurgical
research department is under the direction of metallurgists of the
Bureau of Mines assigned to duty at the university and Salt Lake
City. From January, 1914, to July, 1916, D. A. Lyon, metallurgist,
was in charge of the work, assisted by O. C. Ralston and other
members of the metallurgical staff of the bureau who were on duty
at Salt Lake City.
As a part of the cooperative agreement, the University of Utah
provides five metallurgical fellowships. The fellowships are awarded
to graduates of colleges, preferably of mining schools, who have shown
special aptitude for research investigations. Their employment
extends over the entire 12 months.
Aside from O. C. Ralston, the experimenters mentioned in this
bulletin in connection with the work were holders of these fellow-
ships. Persons desiring further information regarding the coopera-
tion between the university and the bureau are referred to Bulletin
157, Bureau of Mines, pages 9-11.
