Microscale data to macroscale processes: A review of microcharacterization applied to mineral systems

Pearce, Mark A.; Godel, Belinda M.; Fisher, Louise A.; Schoneveld, Louise; Cleverley, J. S.; Oliver, N. H. S.; Nugus, Michael


Microanalysis can provide rapid, quantitative characterization of mineral systems that complements the field- and core-scale observations traditionally made in ore deposits. We review recent innovations in microanalytical procedures and their application to studies of ore deposits. Case studies are presented examining how microanalysis can provide constraints on macroscopic processes within mineral systems. Synchrotron X-ray fluorescence shows centimetre-scale chemical variations associated...[Show more]
