Analyses of Coals in the United States with Descriptions of Mine and Field Samples Collected between July 1, 1904 and June 30, 1910 Part 2. Descriptions of Samples

Description: From Introduction: "This volume contains the descriptions of the samples whose analyses are published in the preceding volume, Part I of this bulletin. The descriptions have been compiled from the notebooks of the persons who collected the samples, have been condensed from accounts given in published reports of the United States Geological Survey, or have furnished by the collection themselves. Inasmuch as the descriptions represent the work of many persons during a period of six years, and inasmuch as they were recorded under widely differing conditions, they necessarily vary in fullness detail."

Niobium (Columbium) and Titanium at Magnet Cove and Potash Sulphur Springs, Arkansas

Description: From Abstract: Niobium (columbium) and titanium occur in several minerals and rocks of the Magnet Cove and Potash Sulphur Springs areas. Niobium is in demand for use in high-temperature and noncreep steels; titanium metal is becoming an important structural material. The Magnet Cove and Potash Sulphur Springs areas are in central Arkansas between the communities of Malvern and Hot Springs. They are underlain by similar alkalic igneous complexes consisting of nepheline syenite, more basic alkalic rocks, and calcite rock or carbonatite. The igneous rocks transect sedimentary rocks of Paleozoic age and were truncated by erosion of Late Cretaceous age.
