This study aims at identifying calculation procedures and representation methods for identifying the mineral species present in a rock. The goal of the study is to identify: the characteristic spectrum for each mineral species identified in the ore; the main shape of the individual species; the preferential arrangement of the individual mineral species; the grain-size distribution of the individual mineral species and of the grains resulting from comminution processes; the degree of liberation for each mineral; and the degree of liberation of the comminution products obtained from the ores.
