NEW YOHK 1 , Feb. IB.--A new process which reduces _the cost of one phdse of separating minerals from ores from S20 to five ..cnts a ton, and may malic vast new fortunes available from attondened mines, low "grade ores and mine refuse, was-wick^y discussed today al the 150th meeting of the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers. It was announced by V,'. 13. Foulke ot the E. I. Du Pont de.Nemours snd Company, which developed it after 35 years of research and has been experimenting with,' it on a small scale at a plant in Shenandoah, Pa., since 1936.~ " Its chlei benefits will be in the iron and anthracite Industries. The entire Nation may profit, however, Foulke said, from a "tremendous increase" in natural resources and the employment of thousand? of workers in the new mining fields he soul the process would open. It is called the '-sinlc and float" process and involves a new method ot separating minerals and ores in liquids. Presently, the "llotstion" process, discovered 30 years ago, is used. Ores are dumped into liquids called halogehated hydrocarbons, one lo three times nenvier than water. The specific gravity of tile liquid used is adjusted to that of the desired mineral, which is separated from the ore by the process ot floating off the,refuse. The minerals, however, absorb about $20 worth of liquods per ton and is lo^t. Because of this comparatively hish cost of separation, mining was not profitable except where the mineral veins weie rich and wheie physical Kindling of the ores cculd be reduced lo a minimum.' The "sink.and float" process employs the same heavy liquids but with *-Z85,OOU,OOU n layer of water floating above it. The ore is sprayed with starch acetate or tannic acid before it enters the liquid. This spray immunizes the minerals against the liquids, pievents DRUNKENNESS HELD NO CRIME By United Press.

Past and Future Candidates? absorption and reduces the loss ot liquid from 50 pounds, worth $20, to 10 ounces, worth five cents, per ton of material treated. Most heavy minerals are found in combination with elements of specific gravity less than three. The ore, after being sprayed, is dumped into the liquid bath. Oie with a specific gravity greater than the heavy liquid, sinks to the bottom. Particles lighter than the heavy liquid but heaviei than water, form a middle laj'er. Those lighter than water libe to the top. As an example of the possibilities of the new process Foulke said that of anthracite might j be profitably extracted from the mounds of refuse that have accumulated beMdc the mines since 1900. He sa.d that approximately 15 per cent of the refuse would be marketable. He said that the life of Harvey Rhmeimith, Mrs. T. C. Stark, Mrs. A. S. Cottom, R. K.

The potential Masaba iron ore reserve would be increased Oy 3,250,000,000 tons, he estimated. Another development, he said, might be the reopening of radium sources in Colorado which cannot compete profitably with radium mines m the Belgian Congo and Canada. The costs o£ installing the new process would be slight, he said. A $3,000,000 plant now ' in operation could use it by building a $200,000 adjunct. The new process has been used several years in laboratories to check the efficiency of other methods of mineral separation, but u n t i l the chemical spray uas devised, it had been considered too expensive to use on a commeicial scale.
