The recent impetus given industry by the national defense emergency has made everyone more or less conscious of the great importance of minerals. During the past few years some of the industrial leaders of Kansas have been attempting to promote the natural resources of the state. Some minerals once considered of little or no value are now being developed. For many years the limestone rocks of Western Kansas have been used for building purposes. Until recently little work has been done on the chemical composition of these rocks. The author has decided to continue the study by analyzing the rocks of the upper Cretaceous system of Ellis County, Kansas for their magnesium content.
