Page 198 - AN INITIAL FINE OF 25 CENTS WILL BE ASSESSED FOR FAILURE TO RETURN THIS BOOK ON THE DATE DUE. THE PENALTY WILL INCREASE TO SO CENTS ON THE FOURTH DAY AND TO fl.OO ON THE SEVENTH DAY OVERDUE.
Page 138 - Report of the Commission appointed to investigate the Zinc Resources of British Columbia and the conditions affecting their exploitation.
Page iii - PREFACE THIS book has been prepared to gather into convenient form the published information on the magnetic separation of ores. The compilation has been supplemented by data from the writer's observations and an extensive correspondence with mill managers and manufacturers.
Page 139 - Siderite is usually mixed with from 3 to 5 per cent. of fine coal, or coke, before calcination, to aid in its decomposition and to insure a reducing, or neutral, atmosphere in the furnace : if coal is used it must be of a noncoking variety.
Page 148 - The plant comprised two furnaces, each of which required the attention of one man, who also trammed the calcined ore to the cooling floor. When the ore had cooled to 50 C., or lower, it was elevated to a trommel which diFIG.
Page 6 - There occur in nature many combinations of minerals whose specific gravities are too similar to permit of their separation by any of the usual concentrating devices. In such combinations where one of the minerals is magnetic, or may be rendered magnetic by the application of heat, magnetism offers an efficient, and often the only, method of separation. For reasons connected with the subsequent reduction of zinc ores the presence of iron is highly objectionable, and ores which carry more than a small...
Page 148 - B, which made two products, one enriched in zinc and one enriched in iron. The iron product of both machines was led to D and the zinc product to C. The two lower machines made a zinc product with 38 to 42 per cent.
Page 86 - ... per cent. The New Bed and Harmony ores are low in phosphorus and vary in iron from 40 to 69 per cent. All of the above ores have a more or less coarse crystalline structure, that admits of easy disintegration and consequently very efficient concentration...

Page 9 - It must make a proper presentation to the magnetic field of the mixture to be separated ; it must bring about the attraction of the magnetic particles by a uniform field of suitable intensity; it must remove the magnetic particles so attracted from the field and cause their discharge from the separator.
