Cobalt Ores

Nature volume 114, page 8 (05 July 1924) | Download Citation



THIS small work forms one of the series of Imperial Institute Monographs and follows the familiar arrangements of its predecessors, commencing with a description of the occurrences of cobalt ores and the uses to which the metal is applied, this being followed by a chapter on the sources of supply of cobalt ores within the British Empire and in foreign countries. As usual, a useful bibliography completes the volume. The work has been quite satisfactorily done, though it must be admitted that the task in this case was a tolerably easy one, as a good deal of the matter was ready to hand. The Canadian Department of Mines has published a good deal of information about cobalt, particularly the researches on the metal and its alloys by Dr.?.?. Kalmus. Naturally the statistical and other material collected by the Imperial Mineral Resources Bureau has been made use of. The little work can be recom-mended to any one who desires a concise review of the occurrences and distribution of the ores of cobalt.
