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.

Geologic Appraisal of Dimension-Stone Deposits

Description: From abstract: The construction stone industry comprises two major branches-dimension stone and crushed and broken stone. For purposes of geologic appraisal, deposits of these two categories should be treated separately, because they differ widely in use, mode of development, and exploitation. Deposits of dimension stones are subjected to much greater selectivity with respect to physical properties, uniformity, and modes of occurrence; these demand a much more critical and detailed study of geologic and mineralogic features.

Geology and Fluorspar Deposits, Northgate District, Colorado

Description: From abstract: The fluorspar deposits in the Northgate district, Jackson County, Colo., are among the largest in Western United States. The mines were operated intermittently during the 1920's and again during World War II, but production during these early periods of operation was not large. Mining was begun on a larger scale in 1951, and the district has assumed a prominent position among the fluorspar producers in the United States. Within the Northgate district, Precambrian metamorphic and igneous rocks crop out largely in the Medicine Bow Mountains, and later sedimentary rocks underlie North Park and fill old stream valleys in the mountains.

Injury statistics as an aid in preventing accidents in metal and nonmetallic mines

Description: Circular produced by the U.S. Bureau of Mines to promote safety through a series of reports on accident prevention in mines. According the the scope statement, "This first section of the revised series of circulars covers various phases of accident prevention at metal and nonmetallic mines. It presents compilations of statistical data on past accident experience, based on injuries resulting from accidents. This information shows how accident-injury records can be used in planning, executing, and measuring the effectiveness of accident-prevention programs" (p. 2).
