"Barite is mined in the Southeastern and Central districts of Missouri. The Counties of Franklin, St. Francois, and Washington comprise the Southeastern district, and the counties of Benton, Camden, Cole, Miller, Moniteau, and Morgan comprise the Central district. Although the latter region is the larger of the two, its production of barite is far less than that of the other. The area which is discussed in this report is in the southwestern corner of Cole County. The main points of the problem were: 1. To determine the features, if any, which apparently controlled the localization of the barite deposits in Township 42 North, Range 13 West of Cole County, Missouri. 2. To devise an economical method of utilizing such features in exploring for undiscovered barite deposits in that area. 3. To propose efficient methods of mining and of beneficiation for the exploitation of the barite deposits"--Introduction, page 1.
