Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This open file contains a number of separate short course notes on indicator minerals prepared for the 26th International Applied Geochemistry Symposium. The notes are providing the most recent research results on the topic of indicator minerals. Indicator minerals are minerals that are indicative of rocks that contain metals. Indicator minerals can be detected in various sediments and can be used to find the rocks with metals. Rocks with a lot of metals have the potential to become mines.
