Tbe large amount of zinc required for war purposes, and the
resulting enormously increased demand for the metal, known commercially as spelter, lend special
interest to an article in the current
number of the "Bulletin of the
Imperial Institufce', on ',The Occurrence and Utilisation of Zinc
Ores." The chief zinc minerals
are described, and a brief account
given of the more important occurrences in the United Kingdom,
the Colonies and India.
Zinc ores have been mined in
many parts of the United Kingdom, notably in Cumberland,
Northberland, Durham, Derbyshire, Shcrpshire and the Isle of
Man, but a large proportion of the
production has for several years
past been shipped to the Continent
for smeiting. By far the most important zinc deposits in the British
Empire are those of Broken Hill
Mines, New South Wales the output of which alone is sufficient to
supply the entire demand of the
United Kingdom for metallic zinc.
The Broken Hill ore before the
war went mainly to Germany for
smelting, but the Australian government has adopted measures
which will prevent this in the future. Zinc is also fonnd in South
Australia, Queensland, Tasmania.
New Zealand and Newfoundland.
Canada contains a number of
workable zinc deposits, particularly
in British Colnmbia, and there is
every prospect of Berma becoming
an important producer. Tn Africa
there are zinc deposits, in Egypt,
Nigeria, Rhodesia and the Transvaal, as to which more information is needed.

a condition we call insane. Every
single departure means that we are
in the border land of insanity. It
is said that all men are insane to a
certain degree. This is true. Every
surrender to physical or mental influences that are departures from
an absolute normal condition means
insanity to just the extent of the
departure. Chorea is a sample of
physical insanity. Paralysis is
physical imbecility. Infantile paralysis, including brain as well as
spinal cord, gives us a true type of
complete imbecility.

tons on the dump and in bins

feet, with rich showings all the
way, while on the lower level,

workings, a distance of 190 feet
has been reached with high grade
ore on the face of the drift and it
