Fuel-Briquetting Investigations, July, 1904, to July, 1912

Description: Report discussing a series of fuel-testing investigations that U.S. Geological Survey began in 1904 for the purpose of analyzing and testing the coals and lignites in the United States in order to determine their fuel values and the most efficient methods of utilizing them for different purposes. Types of tests undertaken included chemical analyses, steaming tests, gas-producer tests, briquetting tests, coking tests, and washing tests of samples collected from the various coals fields of the country. Bulletins presenting the results of these investigations have been periodically published but as supply has run out, the Bureau of Mines has decided to compile the most important facts of these bulletins in one volume along with the results of all other briquetting investigatins undertaken by the government from July 1, 1904, to July 1, 1912.

Sampling Coal Deliveries and Types of Government Specifications for the Purchase of Coal

Description: From Introduction: "Therefore the method of taking and preparing samples for shipment to the laboratory has been given fully as much care as the making of the analyses and tests, and a general plan of collecting samples fairly representative of the delivered coal has been evolved through various modifications and improvements based on experience and increased knowledge of the physical and chemical characteristics of the various coals that are purchased by the Government. The method that is in general use by the Government is described in the following pages."
