  • HEAVY MINERAL ANALYSIS OF SANDSTONES BY RIETVELD

    for heavy mineral analysis involves: (1) sieving sand grains to obtain a particular size range within the fine to medium sand range, (2) density separation of heavy minerals using a heavy liquid (density of 2.85 g/cm 3 ), and (3) mounting the heavy mineral grains
