Abstract

In view of the great need for tungsten in the present industrial world it is necessary that all known tungsten sourves be utilized to the greatest possible extent. Scheelite ores promise to be an increasingly important source of tungsten, inasmuch as the discovery of vast new deposits has been made and known deposits of high grade ores have practically been depleted.
