Ore mineralogy is an important subject with applications widely used to study diverse areas of the Earth and mineral sciences. However, it is the view of the International Mineralogical Associations’ Commission on Ore Mineralogy (COM) that too little value is currently attached to the teaching and understanding of the subject. New techniques and methods have become available in ore mineralogy, and it is the remit of the COM to keep the scientific community informed of these developments…
This short course is meant to update its predecessor (Jambor & Vaughan 1990) and to review new areas significant to the future development of ore mineralogy, such as in environmental studies and in quantitative image analysis. Besides stressing the importance of ore microscopy, the course was designed to take advantage of the abundance of specialized instruments available for demonstration purposes in Ottawa and Guelph.
