AbstractThese short course notes are a summary of a more detailed paper (McClenaghan, 2011) describing common sample processing methods used to reduce sample volume, concentrate heavy minerals, and recover indicator minerals in support of mineral exploration. It is an updated version of previously published workshop notes presented in 2009 and 2011 by McClenaghan (2009, 2011).
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4) is a collaborative federal geoscience program that provides industry with the next generation of geoscience knowledge and innovative techniques to better detect buried mineral deposits, thereby reducing some of the risks of exploration. This set of short course notes provides an overview of common sediment and bedrock sample processing procedures used to recover indicator minerals in support of mineral exploration. The notes are part of a short course volume produced for a 1-day course on indicaotor minerals methods for mineral exploration held on Novemeber 16, 2013 as part of the 26th International Applied Geochemistry Symposium.
