ODM MMSIM picked grain counts



Overburden Drilling Management - metamorphic and magmatic sulphide indicator mineral (MMSIM) grain counts.  The counts are specific to a stated grain size.

General Methodology:

MMSIM picked grain counts

This suite lists the grains that were actually picked as part of the MMSIM procedure.  It includes several grains that were picked accidentally because they resembled MMSIM grains.  Accidental picked grains may include:

  • almandine resembling spessartine
  • anatase resembling gahnite
  • anatase resembling perovskite
  • andalusite resembling ruby corundum
  • augite resembling gahnite
  • chlorite resembling gahnite
  • diopside resembling apatite
  • diopside resembling gahnite
  • hedenbergite resembling gahnite
  • Mn-almandine resembling spessartine
  • monazite resembling Mn-epidote
  • plagioclase resem-bling apatite
  • pumpellyite resembling gahnite
  • pyrite resembling loellingite
  • tourmaline resembling sapphire corundum
  • zoisite resembling apatite
