Accessory minerals carry unique geological, geochemical, and petrologic information, e.g. on the global differentiation of material during the petrogenesis of complex igneous bodies and on the radiometric age of the host rock (measured, for example, on zicons, which enable us to correlate rock and ores. Of the existing mechanical and physicochemical methods of fragmentation of natural and model materials, electric-pulse disintegration seems to optimally meet the requirements of the disintegration process.
