"Mining operations of the zinc and lead deposits of Southwest Missouri, Southeast Kansas and Northeast Oklahoma forming what is known as the Tri-State District are peculiar in many ways. The 'old country' with its shallow gougings and more or less crude methods has practically passed; methods have been improved with the increased size of operations, and the Engineering Department has grown into an indispensable link in the mining operations of practically all the operating companies. But traditions often die hard. Many phases of mining operations are peculiar to this District alone, and likewise engineering practice has its peculiarities"--page 1.
