Sequentially numbered reports issued by the University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory covering a wide range of research topics associated with mineral, petroleum, and coal resources in Alaska and in the technology of exploration, development, extraction and processing of mineral resources in general.

Recent Submissions

  • Metz, P.A. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1984-10)
    Sulphur dioxide from sulphides was extracted for analysis by oxidation with Cuprous oxide at 1070º C, using essentially the method described by Robinson and Kusakabe (1975). The isotopic analyses of the purified sulphur ...
  • Rao, P.D. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1971-09)
    This paper will describe a method for the determination of molybdenum in geological materials. It is known that molybdenum as molybdate or phosphomolybdate ion can be extracted using the liquid ion exchanger, Aliquat 336 ...
  • Rao, P.D. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1972-03)
    Amos and Willis (1) first investigated the use of nitrous oxide for the determination of titanium. They found that the presence of HF and iron enhance the absorption of titanium. They recommended “much more extensive ...
  • Rao, P.D. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1970-11)
    Atomic absorption methods have not been widely used for the determination of tungsten in ores due to its low sensitivity in aqueous solutions (1). A method has now been developed for solvent extraction of tungsten, making ...
  • Rao, P.D. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1973)
    An oxygen combustion, double gold amalgamation system is constructed for the determination of mercury in Alaskan coals. Solutions have been found for certain problems in design and operation. The effect of operating variables ...
  • Rao, P.D. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1974)
    Coal characterization is a systematic determination of those properties of coal, or of its constituents, that affect its behavior when used. It will help in planning for recovery and use of the extensive Alaskan coal ...
  • Rao, P.D. and Wolff, E.N. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1976)
    Research on drying of low-rank coals, such as lignites and subbituminous coals, has been conducted for nearly half a century. Although partial drying of Dakota lignite is practiced for freeze-proofing by mixing partially ...
  • Mildren, Jim. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1975-01)
    The phenomenal and meteoric rise in gold prices in the past few years has stimulated a renewed interest in domestic gold mining and many deposits once considered valueless or at best marginal at past gold prices are now ...
  • Johansen, N. I. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1975)
    Environmental factors affecting mining are difficult to establish in Alaska due to the absence of large scale hard rock mining activities at the present time. Currently, experience is gathered from (and to a large degree ...
