The samples are prepared for geochemical, mineralogical and geochron analysis in the sample preparation lab. The equipments are present for the purpose of cutting, coarse crushing and cleaning, finer crushing, sieving, density separation, magnetic separation, heavy liquid separation and grinding processes.

The samples are cut by diamond tipped  saws to eliminate surfacial alteration.

 

The samples are broken into pieces by hydrolic crushers.

 

The finer crushing are carried out by the different size jaw crushers.

 

Finer crushing (200µ) could be done by roller crusher and disc mill device.

 

The equipment used for sieving.

 

Mineral separation by shaking table and magnetic separator.

 

Mineral separation by heavy liquid.

 

The grinding equipments are vibratory disc (tugsten carbide) mill, vibratory ball mill (agate ball) and agate mortar grinder.
