This book embodies qualitative analysis of ore minerals, quantitative analysis of rocs, ores an economic minerals as well as analysis of coal and water. Qualitative analysis of ore minerals includes a number of dry and wet tests carried out systematically for the identification of ore minerals. Quantitative analyses of rocks and minerals in terms of oxide and elemental composition as well as metal content of many ore minerals and essential constituents of nonmetallic economic minerals have been dealt with by several alternative methods. Proximate analysis of coal in terms of moisture, ash, volatile matter and fixed carbon; ultimate analysis in terms of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulphur and oxygen contents as well as calculation of calorific value by high pressure bomb calorimeter have been included in chapter on coal analysis. Chapter on water analysis Includes estimation of AI, Fe, Co. Mg, Mn, Hg, Na, pH, electrical conductivity, dissolved oxygen, total alkalinity, dissolved solids and hardness including operating procedures of ion/pH meter, spectrophotometer flame photometer and water analyzer kit. The book aims to serve as a complete practical manual and text for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of geology.
