Mineral Separation

Mineral Separation Facilities

Owen Anfinson maintains an active research program and primarily uses these facilities to separate zircon. A detailed mineral separation guide will be produced and posted here when finished.

Instrumentation includes:

  • Camel 24 Pro Water Wheel (purchased 2015): for mineral (particularly zircon) separation
  • Frantz Barrier Magnetic Separator Model LB-1 (purchased 2016)
  • Bico Rock Pulverizer Type UA (purchased 2015)
  • Ro-tap shakers and complement of sieves
  • Geochemical “Wet” laboratory with fume hood
