dc.description.abstractBarite ores were first mined in the Cartersville mining district, Bartow County, Georgia in the late 1800s for the manufacture of barium compounds. The Paga Mine was one of the district's most important producer. Barite mining operations increased during World War I to compensate for the loss of barium from overseas suppliers, and barite was produced for various industrial purposes.
