Abstract

The problem of determining the molar calcite to dolomite ratio in a carbonate rock arose as a result of investigations of concrete aggregate. A method for that determination is proposed, based on a combination of wet chemistry and X-ray techniques. Two carbonate rocks were analyzed and calcite to dolomite ratios were determined, basing the computations on two different assumptions. Those results are compared and suggestions made for further work.
