The recent official statement from the federal geological survey, ap- proximating the lignite supply of this state, lying in the measures of the northwestern counties, at 10,000,000,- 000 tons, has made South Dakotans prick up their ears, and some have turned their attention to a study of the means for the commercial utiliza- tion of this great resource. Among those who have given atten- tion to the problem is Colonel Patti- son F. McClure, former immigration | commissioner and now president of > the Pierre National Bank, who has gone into the subject with character- istic thoroughness and has secured samples of lignite and of briquets, both of German and American pro- duction, and all available information pertaining to lignite and briquetting. While the lignite, now accessible, over the new railroad and to be made more accessible by the constructions of this year, is a wonderful gas pro- ducer, and in the producer engines generates power equivalent to the best anthracite, ton for ton, it is for domestic fuel that is at present most needed, and it is to that use that I Colonel McClure has given most at- I tention. He believes it must be bri- | quetted and that at present the Ger- man process is most feasible. For many years scientific men have . been experimenting to find a cheap and practicable binder for lignite bri- ; quets, and the use of material has been much hindered by lack of such a binder, but the Germans have pro- vided a process by which the necess- ity for an artificial binder is eliminat- ed. They grind up the lignite, sepa- . rate the slate and non-combustible matter, mix itand heat it and cast it into briquets in a powerful press which, by exclusion of the moisture, reduces three tons of raw lignite to one ten of briquets, equal in yalue to the best anthracite. Colonel McClure has secured samples of these German briquets. They are oval, five inches long, two and a.half inches wide and two inches thick. They burn like hard coal, heating red hot, become a j glowing ember and turn into a clean 1 white ash. A German briquetting machine costs $20,000, and will work up 250 tons a day, or a net eighty tons of j briquets, which with lignite at 00, cents a ton at the mine, willbe worth J $5 a ton in briquets. There is the proposition and the prospects which are open to our peo- ple. The equivalent of the best hard coal at $5 per ton within the state where the matter of transportation is wholly within the hands of our own people, and where the vexed ques- tions of interstate commerce and long and short haul cannot come into con- sideration. Colonel McClure is to in- vest capital in the enterprise and no doubt many others in these times of overflowing bank accounts will be glad to join with him. These considerations suggest the negligence of South Dakotans in fail- ing to secure full knowledge of our mineral resources. Outside of the Black Hills we know next to nothing of what we possess in the way of geo- logical riches. In this we are sorely behind our neighbors of North Dako- ta, who have for many years pursued a painstaking examination of econo- micgeology. Here we have in some years supplied the state geologist with $250, in others, with nothing at all, and in years of great liabilty have placed SI,OOO in his hands to exploit our mineral riches. Whatever else we do. we certainly should at the first moment begin a careful and compre- hensive survey.—Doane Robinson, in Sioux City Tribune. Weekly market report furnished by Kadoka Grain Co.
