In the thin section laboratory, glass-covered or polished thin sections and polished epoxy buttons are prepared of solid samples (rocks, concrete, slag etc.) for microscopic and mineral analytical studies. The faculty owns a collection of ca. 12000 thin sections prepared mainly of samples from previous research projects since the 1960's.
Figure above shows examples of samples (from left to right), which represent hydrothermal, sedimentary and magmatic ore deposits.
