Page 179 - ... with a normal shrinkage and burns to a dense strong body at cone 3 and remains thus without change to cone 11. It would doubtless show little change up to cone 22-25. Its burning shrinkage is normal. The clay is as plastic and strong as any but the exceptional fire clays. It vitrifies three or four cones lower than the Maryland clays, but about the same as most Pennsylvania clays. The Missouri clays are much more porous at cone 11. In refractoriness it is just about the same as the best Savage...
Page 108 - ... quarried for glass sand. Both quarries are operated by the Lawton Sand and Supply Co. BATH COUNTY. Bath county lies west of Rowan and southwest of Fleming county. The surface rocks of most of the county are of Ordovicic age. However, along the southeastern border there is a narrow belt of Waverlian rocks. Salt Lick. — On the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway a few miles west of Farmers, is the small town of Salt Lick. The Licking River (narrow gage) Railway runs from Salt Lick in a southeasterly...
Page 190 - ... some places a sandstone overlies the limestone and on the outcrop may be 15 feet thick. The Garvin (Mud Lick) mine, (Ref. 8, p. 623), was opened in 1900 and by 1913 the west entry had been driven 1900 feet into the hill. The section in 1913 as given by Crider was : Ft. In. Sandstone, fine grained Black "Huckleberry shale" 10 Coal 2 Plastic clay, with leaf impressions 2 "Boulder-flint...
Page 69 - The material is stained with iron oxide to some extent on the outside of the pieces. The indianaite is found in pieces from the size of a bird's egg to six inches in diameter. The mixture of bauxite and wavellite occurs in chunks or boulders from six inches to a foot thick. Following is the analysis of the white material at the top : Per cent.
Page 195 - Greaves-Walker calls attention to the fact that in the School House mine, just across the ravine from the Burnt House mine, none of the Aluminite clay was found, showing that it is evidently of very local occurrence. of Sugar Camp Branch, and within a few hundred yards of the Lewis County line. Olive Hill Calcine Company mine (Ref. 8, p. 631). This is no longer in operation, but was located on the right fork of Henderson's branch, 1 mile from Olive Hill. (No. 36, Fig. 42). The section given by Crider...
Page 178 - ... clay was struck at a depth of 625 feet below the surface. The rise of the strata to the west would bring the Olive Hill flint clay horizon to within about 350 feet of the surface at Hitchins. Could it be found of good quality and seven to ten feet in thickness, it would be more economical to mine it even at that depth than it would be to haul it from the Olive Hill district. Its presence or absence could be determined by means of a core drill. Considerable excavation has been done in the hills...

The fire clay occurring from 18 to 21 inclusive is the most promising horizon of the section. At horizon 26 is a deposit of laminated, micaceous shale which contains irregular blocks of flint clay.

Page 152 - The AVaverly sandstones and shales form the surface of Rowan County to the north and west of Morehead. East of Triplett creek the Mississippian limestone catches under the tops of the hills and dips to the east and southeast. Triplett creek from the mouth of Dry Fork to Triplett practically marks the northwestern boundary of the Mississippian limestone. The high hill just east of the depot at Morehead...
Page 179 - Plastic clay, shrank from 11 to 12 inches on drying and to 10% inches on burning, A very plastic and strong bond clay. It dries with a normal shrinkage and burns to a dense strong body at cone 3 and remains thus without change to cone 11. It would doubtless show little change up to cone 22-25. Its burning shrinkage is normal.
