Historischer Bergbau im Harz: Ein Kurzführer

Seit ? ber one thousand Jahren wird im Harz Bergbau betrieben. Reiche Vorkommen an Silber-, Blei-, Kupfer und Eisenerzen f? hrten seit dem Mittelalter zu einem bl? henden Montanwesen. Hier entwickelte sich eine der ersten geschlossenen Industrielandschaften Deutschlands. Die Geschichte des Bergbaus, das Leben der Bergleute, der Wandel der Harzer Industrielandschaft und die Entwicklung der Bergbautechnik sind Teil dieses Buches.

Ii) Since modem instrumental techniques are incapable of determining H 20 + and C0 2 individually, an estimate of their composition is often made by determining a combined 'loss on ignition'. The weight loss after fusing at IOOOaC is taken as an estimate of H 20 + plus C0 2 • The shortcomings of this procedure are well known. 10). There is no control over the proportion of FeO in the sample that will simultaneously oxidize to Fe20 3 on ignition. In the case of the basalt mentioned above, a negative loss on ignition could be obtained if the weight increase due to FeO oxidation exceeds the weight loss due to loss of volatiles.
