A method of mounting fine particulate samples of opaque ore minerals as small as 5 mg. for quantitative microscopic analysis is described. The method was specifically developed for the preparation of minute samples composed of fine particles ranging in size from 100 microns to 5 microns. The method might also be applicable in the preparation of polished thin sections of minute amounts of fine particulate ore-mineral samples.
