Abstract
Areas of sulfides, calcite, and clay-sized materials are locally present in the viburnum trend. The mineralogy of these materials has not been previously studied. The purpose of this study is to examine the areas in the sweetwater mine, determine the megascopic mineralogical features and their relationship to faulting, and then to conduct a thorough and systematic study of the mineralogy of these areas using transmitted light microscopy, reflected light microscopy, cathodoluminescence microscopy, x-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive analysis techniques. The mineralogical information will be used to better understand the character of the viburnum ore deposits, possibly locate new sources of metals, and contribute to the understanding of certain beneficiation problems.
