  11. The chemical analyses reported in this table and all analyses with the dropping mercury electrode were made by Florence L. Feicht, junior physicist, Health Division, Bureau of Mines.
  12. The samples were supplied by the American Zinc 8 Chemical Co., Langeloth, Pennsylvania. The results of the chemical analyses were obtained in the course of regular control analyses performed under the direction of J. O. Butler, chief chemist of this company. Lead was determined by the molybdate method, zinc by the ferricyanide method, and cadmium by precipitation as the sulfide, solution, reprecipitation by aluminum, and titration with ferricyanide.
