Abstract

The purpose of this work was to compare different methods of determining silica in dolomite, and also to ascertain the amount of magnesium oxalate that will precipitate with calcium oxalate in connection with the analysis of dolomite rock by different students. These rocks abound in Iowa and in many other portions of the United States. The specimens under examination were variable mixtures of calcium and magnesium carbonates, with silica, ferric oxide and aluminum oxide. All were obtained from the Mount Vernon quarry and belonged to the Niagara period of geologic history.
