Name: SRC / CF heavy mineral separation and KIM picking (more)

Saskatchewan Research Council / CF Mineral Research HMC separation and KIM picking

SRC was responsible for separating the 0.016-2mm size fraction of the bulk till sample, which was then sent to CF Mineral Research for HMC separation and indicator mineral picking.

The total >3.2 SG heavy mineral productivity of the <2 mm fraction, expressed as the weight of ferromagnetic minerals, and the coarse (0.25-2.0 mm), medium (63-250 μm), and fine (<63 μm) fractions of the non-ferromagnetic minerals is recorded.
