Applications of a Small Electronic Digital Computer to Pyrometallurgical Research

Description: Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines discussing the use of small digital computers for problem solving during pyrometallurgical research. As stated in the field of research, "the scope of research varies from the development of new processes to the evaluation of raw materials for existing processes. The types of calculations required range all the way from those involving attempts to determine complex mathematical relationships between physical quantities to those concerned with simple summaries and analyses of daily furnace production" (p. 2-3). This report includes tables, illustrations, and a photograph.

Areal Geology of the Little Cone Quadrangle, Colorado

Description: From abstract: The Little Cone quadrangle includes an area of about 59 square miles in eastern San Miguel County in southwestern Colorado. The quadrangle contains features characteristic of both the Colorado Plateaus physiographic province and the San Juan Mountains, and it has been affected by geologic events and processes of two different geologic environments.

Argonaut Automatic Flux Controller Design Report

Description: Report issued by the Argonne National Laboratory over design studies conducted on Argonaut reactors for training and research purposes. As stated in the abstract, "the design presented in the form of a steady-state analysis based upon the small-signal linearization of the reactor kinetics transfer function. The measured controller performance and construction details of the equipment is given" (p. 7). This report includes tables, illustrations, and photographs.

Beryl-bearing Pegmatites in the Ruby Mountains and Other Areas in Nevada and Northwestern Arizona

Description: From abstract: Pegmatite occurs widely in Nevada and northwestern Arizona, but little mining has been done for such pegmatite minerals as mica, feldspar, beryl, and lepidolite. Reconnaissance for beryl-bearing pegmatite in Nevada and in part of Mohave County, Ariz., and detailed studies in the Dawley Canyon area, Elko County, Nev., have shown that beryl occurs in at least 11 districts in the region. Muscovite has been prospected or mined in the Ruby and Virgin Mountains, Nev., and in Mohave County, Ariz. Feldspar has been mined in the southern part of the region near Kingman, Ariz., and in Clark County, Nev.

Catalog of Recorded Exploration Drilling and Mine Workings, Tri-State Zinc-Lead District--Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma

Description: Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines discussing mining practices conducted in the tri-state district of Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. As stated in the introduction, "the catalog preserves the records of accomplished explorations and mine developments in the district and provides a readily available source of information for individuals and firms interested in planning mineral explorations, Government agencies estimating of reserves of mineral resources, and the mining industry for general use" (p. 1). This report includes tables, maps, and illustrations

Chromite and Other Mineral Deposits in Serpentine Rocks of the Piedmont Upland, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware

Description: From abstract: The Piedmont Upland in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware is about 160 miles long and at the most 50 miles wide. Rocks that underlie the province are the Baltimore gneiss of Precambrian age and quartzite, gneiss, schist, marble, phyllite, and greenstone, which make up the Glenarm series of early Paleozoic(?) age. These are intruded by granitic, gabbroic, and ultramafic igneous rocks. Most of the ultramafic rocks, originally peridotite, pyroxenite, and dunite, have been partly or completely altered to serpentine and talc; they are all designated by the general term serpentine. The bodies of serpentine are commonly elongate and conformable with the enclosing rocks.

Contributions to the Data on Theoretical Metallurgy: [Part] 13. High-Temperature Heat-Content, Heat-Capacity, and Entropy Data for the Elements and Inorganic Compounds

Description: From Introduction: "This publication as its title indicates, contains high-temperature heat-content, heat-capacity, and entropy data for the elements and inorganic compounds. The available experimental and calculated values were compiled and intercompared, and a selection of "best" values was made. The heat-content data are given in tabular form for use by those who make thermodynamic computations by means of tables, and in algebraic form for use by those who prefer equations."

Control of Fires in Inactive Coal Formations in the United States

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of this Bulletin, in addition to presenting a history and description of Bureau activities in controlling these fires, is to provide the mining industry and the public with information concerning methods of controlling fires in inactive coal formation. The Bulletin is intended to serve as a guide to the public and more specifically to mining supervisory personnel and engineers who may be called upon to extinguish such fires."

Design of Underground Openings in Competent Rock

Description: From Summary: "This report presents methods and principles useful in designing underground mine openings and pillars in competent rock formations. Two types of formations are considered: (1) Massive formations, in which openings are generally mined with an arched roof, and (2) bedded formations, in which openings are generally mined with a flat roof."

Evaluation of the Technical, Economic and Practical Feasibility of Radiation Preservation of Fish

Description: From abstract: Based on exploratory studies conducted over the last six years on the radiation-preservation of various marine species, it is apparent that low dose substerilization-radiation treatment of certain selected sea foods can provide advantages for the procurer, processor, distributor and consumer of edible marine products.
