Ore boulders and thin sections
For over two hundred years, glacially transported blocks from mineralisations have been used to locate ores in Sweden. The collection “Ore boulders and thin sections” at the Mineral Resources Information Office in Malå contains information on approximately 20 000 boulders and outcrops.
Most boulders and outcrops in the collection have information on mineral content, rock type, chemical analyses, etc.
There is also a large number of samples and specimens archived at the Mineral Resources Information Office. Clients can take their own samples from these to perform their own analyses. A copy of the analysis results is to be submitted to the Mineral Resources Information Office.
