The oxidation of ferrous iron in rocks during mechanical grinding

J. G. Fitton, R. C. O. Gill

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Experiments are described which demonstrate considerable atmospheric oxidation of ferrous iron in hydrous igneous rocks during routine grinding in a disc mill prior to chemical analysis. The causes and implications of this oxidation are discussed.
