New Mining Corporation
Gets Charter; To Produce
Chrome and Olivene
The Industrial Minerals
corporation of Burnsville
which was granted a state
eharter this week will mine
chrome ore and olivene.
Three hundred acres oh
Mine Hill in the Mine Fork
section of the county have
been leased and very rich
deposits of the minerals
are located on it.- The pro
perty is owned by the Ray
heirs, Mai MeCourry and
the Edwards sisters.
The enterprise is being
financed by a group of
Chicago men, represented
here by G: W. Kunstman,
Jr. Charles Weid, ' civil
engineer of Chicago, is in
change of mining opera
tions and is already in
Burnsville to begin install
ation of machinery and
operations. The firm
plans to maintain offices
in both Burnsville
Chrome ore and olivene
are critical materials in
the defense effort. Chrome
ore is essential to the pro
duction of chromium, and
at the present time olivene
is used in refractories.
Experiments show that
it can be used in extingu
ishers f 9 r incen d i a r y
The Chrome mineral
also contains a very high
percentage of magnesium
ore and is expected event
ually to become one of the'
nation’s leading sources
for the production of mag
nesium metal.
Mined During World War I
The enterprise is not an
entirely new one here as
these same metals were
mined on the Mine Hill
property during World
War I. However, at that
time the mining was done
by hand and was not very
extensive. "3^’*' ;;
The present corporation

E. L. Briggs, Burnsville
lawyer, is attorney for the
firm, and ,G. W. Kunstman,

with Mr. Priggs and Mr.
Weid to get operations
under way. Mr. Kunstman
personally held mining
leases in 1935 and 36 on
part of the property now
leased. He stated that the
firm planned to widen and
expand their operations as
rapidly as possible, and!
