Consorminex Inc. / Grain Mount: 0.25 – 0.50 mm (1)



Procedure Description

Laboratory: Consorminex Inc.

Method: Grain Mount: 0.25 – 0.50 mm (1)

Minerals were mounted in 25 mm cylindrical epoxy mounts, with grains arranged in rows within 9 cells per mount.  GH (greater than half mm fraction) grains were arranged in 5 rows of 6 grains per cell, to yield a total of 270 grains per mount.  QH (quarter to half mm fraction) grains were placed in 8 rows of 10 in each cell, resulting in a total of 720 grains per mount.  The mounts were polished using diamond paste.  Maps recorded the sample number and identification number of each grain.
