2:25 p.m. – “The often overlooked use of polarized light microscopy in the mining industry” Mr. Dan Linder (Gifford Room)

Though often overlooked, the use of the Polarized Light Microscope can be a powerful tool in the mining industry.  The PLM can be used, for example, in certain types of mineral identification at a tremendous cost savings.  Case studies and examples of PLM use will be presented throughout the seminar.
