Google is too dumb to let me put the list of news in this column and falsely claims that all my pages are self-duplicates.
Google's so-called "Artificial Intelligence" is an abuse of the concept of intelligence!
The recognition of variations in sample suites using fluid inclusion
- applications in mineral exploration
Memoirs Geological Society of India, No. 11, (1988) pp67-78
Mineral samples often look identical in hand specimen
contain completely different fluid inclusion populations. The
method provides a rapid and cheap method of observing the variations in
the fluid inclusion populations as a means of discriminating between
similar looking samples. It is possible to use decrepitation on samples
of pervasive silicification as well as on quartz veins and comparison
such samples shows the relationship between coexisting veins and
Decrepitation responses from vein quartz and chert at gold mines in the
Northern Territory, Australia, are quite different and aid in the
mapping of the area. Opal samples give a particularly characteristic
decrepitation peak while variations between carbonate samples can aid
the discrimination between sedimentary carbonate horizons.
differences in magnetite samples at Tennant Creek, N.T., Australia,
not be correlated with the known gold distribution, but do indicate
the ore bodies are quite complex and significantly different from
sedimentary banded iron formations. Although the method is best used to
compare suites of similar samples, in some cases it can also provide an
insight into the genesis of the deposits.
