Diamond Indicator Processing grain screening and Heavy Mineral Concentrates (0.25-0.5 mm)

Diamond Indicator Processing, magnetic separation, methylene iodide HMC separation (0.25 - 0.5 mm).

General Methodology:

Diamond Indicator Processing of Thunder Bay Ontario: Magnetic grain separation and Heavy Mineral Concentration (HMC). The 0.25-0.5 mm fraction of samples are run through a magnetic separator and run through methylene iodide diluted with acetone (specific gravity =3.2). Numerous weights are recorded during the procedure, as listed in the table below: (OF 3355 Mentions these processes specifically to remove magnetite and micas)
