How Southwest Wisconsin tailing piles can be worked at a profit
"It was not until the Flotation Process was introduced in this S.W. Wisconsin zinc district that the writer was convinced that some of the tailing piles here could be worked at a profit. In 1928, the Badger Zinc Company built a 120 ton Flotation Plant about two miles north-east of Linden. It was after the second visit to the plant that the writer learned the above company was making a profit of a 5% zinc ore with very little lead and with a low market price for the finished product, namely $30.00 per ton for a 60% zinc concentrate...the body of this thesis is the result of actual experience, deductions, and laboratory tests, as the writer practically "grew up" with flotation in this district"--Introduction, page 1-2.
