Covers ideas and methods of EMPA and SEM for geological graduate scholars and postdoctoral staff.
The booklet offers with the traditional exploitation and construction of copper, exemplified through the mining district of Faynan, Jordan. it's an interdisciplinary research that contains (mining-) archaeological and clinical facets. the advance of organizational styles and technological advancements of mining and smelting throughout the a long time (5th millennium BC to Roman Byzantine period), in a particular mining area, is mentioned.

Operating condition was 15 kV accelerating voltage with a beam current of 15 nA and beam size ~1m. The average spectrum count was compared with the natural standards. The room temperature (RT) Mössbauer spectra were recorded in a conventional constant acceleration spectrometer (Wissel GmbH, Germany) with a 25 mCi Co/Rh source. Two mirror-imaged spectra were obtained in 512 out of 1024 channels. The finely powdered samples were pressed tight in plexi holders, and based on the iron content (known from EPMA) determined amounts of the samples were taken to optimise the thickness effect.
We have also used Graham & Powell’s (1984) hornblende-garnet geothermometry to calculate the equilibration temperature of the basic granulites. The temperatures calculated from the two methods are falling within the same range.
