Mineral Industries Survey of the United States: California, Calaveras County, Mother Lode District (South). Mines of the Southern Mother Lode Region. Part 1 -- Calaveras County

Description: From Introduction: "The present paper discusses regional resources, chiefly of gold, the existence of which has long been demonstrated by substantial production but which are so nearly marginal in value that their mining has been protracted and will probably continue indefinitely for many decades."

Permissible Electric Cap Lamps and Ventilation in Certain California Mines and Water-Tunnel Construction

Description: From Introduction: "As a result of the recommendations of this committee, special studies have been made of the methane hazards incident to mining and tunneling operations in the Coast Range Mountains. These studies have resulted in the adoption of numerous safety precautionary measures; among them the use of permissible types of mining equipment, electric cap lamps, with which this deals with primarily."

Some Mining Districts of Eastern Oregon

Description: From abstract: This report presents the results of a reconnaissance of most of the mining districts of Oregon east of the Cascade Range, with the exception of the districts in the Sumpter quadrangle. The districts described are distributed through an area roughly coincident with the Blue Mountains, which extend over much of the northeast quarter of the State.

The Girdwood District, Alaska

Description: From abstract: The Girdwood district has been known for about 35 years to contain placer gold, but the source of the gold in veins was not discovered until about 1909. When the Alaska Railroad was completed through Girdwood it was hoped that the improved transportation facilities would enable the lode mines to operate at a profit and also to furnish tonnage to the railroad. Production from the quartz veins, however, has been negligible, although one placer mine has been operating steadily for several years.

Report on Progress of Investigations of Mineral Resources of Alaska in 1904

Description: From letter of transmittal: The report contains fourteen papers, prepared by ten members of the geologic corps, who have been engaged in Alaskan investigations during the last year. In this report an attempt has been made to summarize the economic results of last season's field work. Geologic matter has been entirely excluded, except where it has a direct bearing on the subjects under discussion. While such a report can have no permanent value, other than as a record of mining conditions during the year, it is believed that its prompt publication will help the mining industry of Alaska.

Past Lode-Gold Production from Alaska

Description: From abstract: This report presents an analysis of the statistical records of the Geological Survey regarding the production of lode gold from the Territory of Alaska for the period 1882 to 1937, inclusive. During that time lode gold to the value of $172,368,000 had been mined. The history of the discovery of lode gold and the early developments in lode-gold mining in each of the various districts is outlined briefly, and the production of lode gold in each of the geographic subdivisions is tabulated fully for each year, as far as the records and the practices of the Geological Survey permit.

Quicksilver Deposits Near the Little Missouri River, Pike County, Arkansas

Description: From introduction: In this study the Geological Survey and the Bureau of Mines, United States Department of the Interior, cooperated. The author prepared detailed geologic maps showing the surface topography, geology, and workings of 11 mines, and the underground workings and geology of 7 of these; the Bureau of Mines engineers directed diamond-drilling and.bulldozer-trenching. The locations of the detailed maps are shown on plate 23, an index map overprinted on a segment of the map made by Reed and Wells.

The Coso Quicksilver District, Inyo County, California

Description: From abstract: The Coso quicksilver district, which is in the Coso Range, Inyo County, Calif., produced 231 flasks of quicksilver between 1935 and 1939. The quicksilver mineral, cinnabar, was not recognized in the district until 1929, although the hot springs near the deposits have been known since about 1875...The granitic rock on which much of the sinter rests is considerably altered. The cinnabar was deposited as films and grains in open spaces in the sinter, during one stage in a sequence of hot spring activities that still continues. The amount of sinter in the district is estimated to be about 1,800,000 tons. Although the greater part of this does not contain much cinnabar, the total quantity of such material is large enough to be of interest as a low-grade ore.

The Canadian Gypsum Industry

Description: From introduction: The production of gypsum is one of the oldest industries in Canada, and in point of gypsum output Canada ranks third among the countries of the world. Gypsum was discovered in the Maritime Provinces at a very early date, but there is no authentic record..of production until about 1822, when gypsum was mined on a small scale in Ontario. Since.then the production has grown slowly but steadily to more than a million tons. In 1928 the output was 1,205,846 short tons, valued at $3,622,007.

Mechanical Shoveling in Underground Metal Mines

Description: From Scope of Bulletin: "The object of the current bulletin is to present recent data on mechanical shoveling in underground metal mines and in selected nonmetal mines. This bulletin supplements the 1924 edition, but the main discussion covers mechanical shoveling only, because most of the new material relates to equipment recently developed, to improved technique in loading, and ti changes in loading practice in certain mining districts."
