Geology/IR microscope


My name is Fatemeh Sepidbar. I am a doctoral student in petrology-geology at the University of Tehran (Iran). My thesis subject focuses on the geochemistry and petrogenesis of volcanic rock located east of Sangan city, with the goal of presenting a model for iron mineralization.
> I am interested in obtaining stable isotope analysis of fluid inclusions in Hematite and magnetite, and IR microscopic studies at fluid inclusion of magnetite and hematite,  please If there is a laboratory that offers this analytical service, could you please contact me ?I am Intreste to Chemical composition and Isotope composition, and baro-acoustic decrepitation method in fluid inclusion at hematite and magnetite.


I,m not sure who offers such services today but twenty years ago The Colorado School of Mines Laboratory and Skyline Labs did. You should be able to find out on line.  The only fluid inclusion work that I have done was with the USGS and they had their own labs.

I am an economic geologist. An economic geologist does mineral evaluations and appraisals of mineral or mining properties. I can tell you if your deposit has value - remember that a mineral deposit, no matter how good, only has value when mined. Any value assigned to a mineral deposit, in the ground, is only the speculative value that deposit.


I have been a economic geologist for most of my 35 year career. Although I have done work in perhaps 45 states and numerious countries much of my work has been in Appalachian coal, intermountain west gold and silver, and Arizona uranium.

Past President of the Virginia Section of the American Institute of Professional Geologists and a certified geologist in twelve states.

BS Degree from Eastern Kentucky University. Work on MS Degree @ Eastern Kentucky University, Colorad School of Mines & Marshall University Numerious short courses on the value of mineral deposits and how to value same. Also several short courses dealing with the different types of geologic processes; sedimentary, igneous, metamorphic along with the mineral associated with each.
