    be measured as alpha-Quartz. The crystalline silica content in the respirable fraction is calculated back to a percentage in the bulk sample. Some iron ore samples were tested for recovery by mixing 4 g of the ore with 1 g of very fine Quartz powder (app. 60% respirable). The recovery of respirable Quartz was >97.5 % for Quartz/iron ore mixtures.
