Since the beginning of World War II a great deal of investigation has been done on the tungsten deposits in the western United States. These deposits are principally composed of scheelite. The scheelite deposits in the western United States are low grade, and disseminated. With the development of nonmetallic flotation methods these vast deposits of scheelite-bearing ores have become a major source of tungsten for the United States, as the high grade ore deposits have become practically depleted.
