    A Process for Reducing Rocks and Concentrating Heavy Minerals By Thomas R. Strong and Rhonda L. Driscoll Abstract To obtain minerals suitable for age-dating and other analyses it is necessary to first reduce the mineral-bearing rock to a fine sand-like consistency. Reducing whole rock requires crushing grinding and sieving.

    The final step in mineral separation is by preferential flotation of mineral fractions by heavy liquid. Nonmagnetic fractions first undergo separation by sodium polytungstate (SPT 2.85 g/cm3) and finally by methylene iodide (MEI 3.3 g/cm3). At the end of separation the final fraction should contain minerals such as zircon apatite monazite
