Arizite (Diatomaceous Earth)

The 'Arizite (Diatomaceous Earth)' file is part of the Richard Mieritz mining collection, consisting of economic geologic information on mining properties and prospects across Arizona and surrounding states. Richard Mieritz was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin before moving to Arizona. He worked at the Silver Bell for ASARCO during the late 1940s. He was later a consultant based out of Phoenix. Records show he was a registered engineer and geologist in Arizona from the 1950s until 1995.
