Mineral Separation Laboratory

The Mineral Separation Laboratory facilitates sample preparation for both internal and external researchers.

Here we list all available laboratory equipment, including manuals for using the different machines. Please contact Roel van Elsas for more information about the services of the Mineral Separation Laboratory.

The Mineral Separation Laboratory performs the following treatments of samples:

  • splitting and crushing 
  • cleaning, washing and/or desliming
  • heavy liquid separations 
  • magnetic separations 
  • separation by shape
  • optical microscopy and mineral picking

Rock samples (igneous, metamorphic, sedimentary) are reduced into smaller pieces and fractionated in order to select minerals. Depending on type of mineral various separation techniques are applied.
