Thomas, Jayasree and Riyazulla, M S and Subramanian, S and Haran, N P and Gundewar, C S (2006) Mineralogical and Electron Microprobe Studies on the Cobalt Sample from Kalyadi Copper Deposit, Hassan District, Karnataka. In: Proceedings of the International Seminar on Mineral Processing Technology and Indo-Korean Workshop on Resource Recycling (MPT-2006), March 8-10, 2006, NML, Chennai.
The copper-cobalt deposit from Kalyadi, Hassan district is located between Sigegudda and Nuggihalli greenstone belts of Karnataka Craton. The cobalt mineralisation is mostly in banded, cherty and feldspathoid quartzite. The cobalt sample under investigation has been characterized by a variety of techniques including electron microprobe studies. The microprobe studies on sulphide grains were done to study the chemistry and elemental replacement in their lattice structure. The cobalt is present up to 3.21 wt% in pyrite grains whereas it is not present in chalco-pyrite and arsenopyrite. Cobalt has preferably replaced iron in pyrite, which is of volcanic - exhalative origin.
