For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :24 pages
The Bureau of Mines, in a cooperative agreement with the White Pine Copper Company, White Pine, Michigan, undertook the development of a procedure to produce a pigment-grade red cuprous oxide from a black cupric oxide precipitate. This report describes the five steps required, namely pelletizing, decomposing in an inert atmosphere in the presence of graphite, grinding, sizing, and coating to provide stability.
