Abstract
This investigation is part of the Bureau of Mines research effort directed at advancing mineral technology and minimizing energy requirements for extractive metallurgy. The emplacement of the primary minerals petalite (lialsi4o10) and spodumene (lialsi2o6) in the lithium pegmatites is examined on the basis of their Gibbs energies of formation determined from lithium metasilicate and oxides, using a series of proposed reactions. The reaction between spodumene, quartz, and petalite (lialsi2o6 + 2sio2 -> <- lialsi4o10) apparently does not take place in nature but may be proved experimentally.
