Minnesota ASTM Physical Laboratory needed for the following: Screen the air-dried bulk samples through a 6.3-mm (0.25-in.) screen in accordance with ASTM Test Method E 276. Crush any oversize material so that 100 % passes the screen.
For particles finer than 15.2 cm (6 in.), the generation of excessive fines can be limited
by stage crushing the oversize material in three steps: (1) large jaw crusher set at 1.92 cm,
(2) small jaw crusher set at 0.95 cm, and (3) roll crusher set at 0.64 cm. After each of the
first two crushing steps, the -0.64 cm fraction is collected and the oversize is passed to
the next crushing phase.

Recent laboratory-weathering studies of run-of mine waste rock from metal mines
demonstrate that crushing a bulk sample so it passes a 6.3-mm (0.25-in.) screen may
change the character of the sample by artificially increasing liberation and consequent
surface areas of acid-producing and acid-consuming minerals contained in the + 6.3-mm
(0.25-in.) material.

A suggestion for avoiding this problem is to segregate the − 6.3-mm (0.25-in.) fraction by
screening rather than crushing.

Currently we'd need 2 samples. More samples in the future.

Rocks and Minerals

Non-Destructive Laboratory needed for analyzing historical objects to determine if they were made from meteorites and compare them without damaging them, or removing samples. For decades, historians have debated the origin of iron used in prehistoric times by Natives of the Northwest Coast of North America to make tools and weapons.Many iron tools, especially knives or daggers are now in museum collections or owned by Natives. The objects are now heirlooms or "cultural treasures." Some are said to have been made from meteorites. If the element contents and proportions could be determined it would open a new door to historical research.
