  • The Relationship Between Mineral Type And Density

    The Relationship between Mineral Type and Density (g/ml) Purpose/Introduction: The purpose of this lab was to understand the relationship between minerals and density, the ratio of mass to volume, particularly, how density can be used to identify mineral type. In the lab, two samples of the mineral, feldspar, were measured for mass and volume in order to calculate their density. Many of the mineral tests yielded qualitative data, such as color, streak, luster, and crystal shape, which can be subjective. Other tests produced quantitative data, whose outcome of density is measured the same by anyone. Mineral density is determined by the specific chemical compound, because the mass and volume are dependent on the weight of the atoms. In this…

  • The Importance Of Particle Size Analysis

    Particle size plays an important role in evaluating the quality and performance of a mineral processing plant (Horiba 2014, 1). It also influences many of the properties of a particulate such as its reaction rate with some reagents. Particle size analysis is significant in determining the quality of ore grind and in establishing the degree of liberation of the valuable materials from the gangue (Haldar 2013, 227). This is done by mineral processing plants to ensure that the desired particle size…

  • Description Of Adaair Park Field Trip

    Park Field Trip was a really great experience where you get to see many different types of rocks and many diverse examples of minerals. This trip happened on Saturday November 1, 2014. Several geology classes went to the field trip for the expedition, with the purpose of learning the different types of each rock and its minerals and also to identify the stones from oldest to youngest. The group leaders of this trip were several professors of geology. Professor Croxen, Garrett, Dr. B, did…

  • Surface Of The Earth Research Paper

    Earth is composed of many different components such as minerals, and rocks. These components have several different properties and characteristics which are unique to each. In this paper, I will discuss some of the different properties, characteristics, and uses of three different factors, those being gypsum, coal, and nickel. Gypsum Gypsum is derived from the Greek word gypsos which means plaster (Gypsum Meanings, Powers, and History). Gypsum is composed of oxygen, calcium, sulfur, and water…

  • Piemontite

    Chalcopyrite is a copper iron sulfide mineral. Its coloring is metallic brassy to a brown-orange, and on the Mohs scale, it has a hardness of 3.5 to 4. The chemical formula of chalcopyrite is CuFeS2. It is the most commonly occurring copper containing mineral in New Zealand, but it is only created near volcanic areas. On the metaphysical level, chalcopyrite is used for meditation, specifically for opening the third eye chakra (crown chakra), and physical healing. The stone clears any energy…

  • A Short Summary On Onyx

    Onyx: The Practical and Metaphysical Story Onyx is a specific variety of the mineral known as chalcedony. It is a banded mineral, which means that the layering of the rock that formed it has caused “bands” of different colors to appear. Many people mistake onyx for a type of agate, which is another type of chalcedony, but where agate has curved bands onyx has parallel bands instead. Onyx is found in nearly every color, though bands of black and white are the most common. When onyx is banded…

  • Golden Geologic History Report: The Journey To Red Rocks Park

    We have travelled to the Morrison formation which is dated to be 150 million years old and the rocks have grain of sizes between clay-sized and 1mm. The Morrison formation has inconsistent lateral thickness as it has thick layers and goes down to thin layers and has tightly compressed sediments. To why we believe the place was roamed with dinosaur as the Morrison formation is deposited near a flooded river or lake which have soft soil for dinosaur to implant dinosaur prints and the site itself…

  • Mt. Isa Mine

    Isa orebody. When the oxidation was completed, the depth of the oxidized zone was around 50m from the ground surface (Forrestal, 1990). Cerussite was found as the dominant mineral while zinc was mostly exhausted. The orebodies’ bedded nature remained the same within the oxidized zone but the rocks are filtrated outside the oxidized zone. In addition, this oxidized ore were generally used for ancient production of mining a long time ago. But nowadays, this oxidized ore would only be used for…
