Compound and Elemental Analysis At Seven Mile Hole Area (Larson, Et Al., 2009)
Exploration Activity: Compound and Elemental Analysis At Seven Mile Hole Area (Larson, Et Al., 2009)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Seven Mile Hole Area|
|Exploration Technique||Compound and Elemental Analysis|
Standard X-ray diffractometer (XRD) analyses were used in the laboratory to confirm the PIMA mineral identifications and to look for minerals that have poor SWIR response (e.g., quartz and feldspars) or were not present in great enough concentrations to be detected by the PIMA. Petrographic and electron microprobe analyses of selected samples were conducted in the laboratories of the GeoAnalytical Laboratory at Washington State University. The distributions of hydrothermal mineral types or associations in the Sevenmile Hole altered area are shown in Fig. 3.
