Miolino, Domenico and Ponterio, Rosina and Saccà, Carmelo and Saccà, Domenica and Nucera, Preziosa (1999) FTIR spectroscopy in the study of Galena in mineralizations from the Peloritani MTS. Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti, Classe di Scienze FF. MM. NN., 76-77. pp. 285-297.
The authors examined galena in mineralizations from the Utra and Tripi (Alì), Rosario di Cancillo and Due Fiumare (Fiumedinisi), Carruggio Lummia (Molino di Giampilieri). By means of an IR Spectroscopy study we have determined microinclusions of undefinable minerals, due to their small quantity, using reflection microscopy or other commonly used techniques. At a low frequency wavenumber 200-600 quartz, calcite, ferrous oxide and hausmannite are normally found to be present.
In the 500-4000 range, we observe peaks relative to quartz, calcite, barium carbonate, manganese dioxide, ferrous oxide, silver compounds, sphalerite, pyrite, chalcopyrite and antimonite. The obtained results are compared with data found bt Atomic Absorption.
