Lakefield Research Mineral Picking Till Samples

Lakefield Research indicator mineral counts. Samples are picked for 4 major indicator minerals including Cr-diopside, Cr-pyrope, Mg-ilmenite and chromite. Grain identitiy is confirmed by SEM analysis.

General Methodology:

Lakefield Research indicator mineral picking and grain mounting. Till and kimberlite samples are examined for indicator minerals under binocular microscopes. The 0.25-0.5 mm, 0.5-1.0 mm and 1-2 mm fractions are picked for pyrope, chrome diopside, ilmenite and chromite with grain identities being confirmed by microprobe.
