Application of Reflected and Luminescence Microscopy and the Auger Microprobe to Beneficiation Problems
The application of microscopic and microbeam techniques to certain beneficiation problems can significantly increase one's understanding of the problems and aid in their solution. Luminescence microscopy has important potential value in those cases where ores and mill products contain ore and gangue minerals that exhibit cathodoluminescence. The Auger microprobe makes it possible to detect and chemically analyze the presence of submicroscopic coatings on individual particles of beneficiation products.
