Ore petrography is the ideal technique for the identification of the mineral composition of ore, concentrate and tailings. The ore petrography can accurately quantify the ore and gangue minerals, determine the size distribution and the mineral liberation in sieved fractions and unsieved samples.

The use of reflected and transmitted polarized light microscopy, in some cases associated with scanning electron microscopy and image analysis can assist in the prevention and remediation of acidic drainage from mine wastes.
