DescriptionThe only production of magnesite in the United States is from California where a very few mines had a total output of $77,000 in 1913. None of the magnesite mined is sold crude, but it is all calcined before shipment from the mines. By far the greater part of the domestic product is consumed in calcined form as a digester for wood pulp in paper manufacture. Some, however, is used in making plastic material for flooring, tiles, wainscoating, artificial marble, paint and fireproofing. 8 p.
