3 Question from Dr. Zameer Ahmad Shah How you collect samples
Answer from presenter Chromite exploration is one of the toughest mineral exploration in mining industry. Once you find a Chromite ore body or outcrop , we save the coordinates of the ore body in the GPS ,mark the location in the Geological map ,note down also in the field book (Coordinates & description) and later plot the coordinates in the google earth and also on Geological map made with help of Arc GIS. From one Chromite ore body ,one sample of 5-7 Kg of Chromite is taken after hammering , to remove the weathered surface and collect the fresh sample. If the ore body is small less than 20 meters , one sample is enough for analysis . If Chromite ore body is having length more than 20 meters or at one place you find more than one ore body , you can collect 2 or 3 samples , depending upon the volume of the ore bodies. Samples are sealed in the sample bags , labelling is done on the sampling bags and sent to lab to know the different oxides percentages of the Chromite ore body.
