  • A mineral can be defined as a naturally occurring inorganic solid that possesses an orderly internal structure and a definite chemical composition.
  • It must occur naturally, must be inorganic ,must be a solid. It must possess an orderly internal structure, that is, its atoms must be arranged in a definite pattern.
  • Minerals must have a definite chemical composition that may vary within specified limits.
  • The abundance of the doubly substituted CO2 isotopologue, 13C18O16O, in CO2 produced by phosphoric acid digestion of synthetic, inorganic calcite and natural, biogenic aragonite is proportional to the concentration of 13C–18O bonds in reactant carbonate, and the concentration of these bonds is a function of the temperature of carbonate growth.
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2) is naturally cycled among the Earth’s atmospheric, oceanic, and terrestrial systems in a process called the “carbon cycle”. The fate of CO2 in the atmosphere is a function of complex biogeochemical processes.
  • Direct mineral carbonation has been investigated as a process to convert gaseous CO2 into a geologically stable, solid final form.
  • Carbon dioxide is dissolved into this slurry, by diffusion through the surface and gas dispersion within the aqueous phase.
  • Gaseous carbon dioxide is converted into a solid carbonate in an industrial imitation of natural weathering involving alkaline silicate minerals.
  • The geochemical trapping of CO2 (i.e. fixation as carbonates) will eventually occur as CO2 reacts with the fluids and host rock in the reservoir.
  • Carbonate mineral (CM) distribution is similarly helpful in comparing biogenic (shell material) and authigenic (commonly aragonite) carbonate abundance patterns in sediments.
  • Carbonate minerals aims at a sequestration method that can operate on a scale that allows the unrestricted use of fossil energy.
  • The identification and discrimination of carbonate minerals in hand specimens or thin sections, are made easier by the use of simple chemical
    staining methods, without losing a great amount of time in chemical analyses or optical investigations.
  • The abundance of fossils fuels, the availability of clean energy technologies such as zero emission coal technology, as well the lack of sufficient supply of other forms of energy.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is being utilized to image porosity and flow heterogeneity in core plugs, but MicroComputed Tomography (microCT) currently affords better imaging resolution of the pore networks.
  • A coloured carbonate material, the green pigment malachite, was identified in the paint used to decorate a Chinese 18th century painted silk dress at the Philadelphia Museum.
  • Zeolite is an industrial mineral with growing potential in Canadian and North American markets, as new applications and new deposits .
  • Calcium carbonates have enjoyed a growing market over the past couple decades as technological advances have made particle size measuring devices more advanced making the full characterization of a powder possible.
  • The limestone resources in these areas include a variety of qualities of stone supplying a very wide range of markets.
