Perlite Resources of the United States

Description: Abstract: This report abstracts the published information on geologic occurrence and distribution of perlite in the United States. Perlite is important in the growing light-weight aggregates industry. The geology and petrology of perlite are described and brief mention is made of mining, milling, processing, economic factors, and reserve figures where known. A table of analyses of the rhyolitic, latitic, and dacitic perlite, welded tuff, pitchstone, and obsidian is included mainly to show the water content. The index map shows known deposits and the geology of areas in which possible deposits may be found. The locations of processing plants are indicated to show their economic relationship to the deposits and to markets.

Strategic Graphite, A Survey

Description: From abstract: Strategic graphite consists of certain grades of lump and flake graphite for which the United States is largely or entirely dependent on sources abroad. Lump graphite of high purity, necessary in the manufacture of carbon brushes, is imported from Ceylon, where it occurs in vein deposits. Flake graphite, obtained from deposits consisting of graphite disseminated in schists and other metamorphic rocks, is an essential ingredient of crucibles used in the nonferrous metal industries and in the manufacture of lubricants and packings. High-quality flake graphite for these uses has been obtained mostly from Madagascar since World War I. Some flake graphite of strategic grade has been produced, however, from deposits in Texas, Alabama, and Pennsylvania. The development of the carbon-bonded crucible, which does not require coarse flake, should lessen the competitive advantage of the Madagascar producers of crucible flake.
