Keeping Standards up-to-date Standards are living documents which reflect progress in science, technology and systems. To maintain their currency, all Standards are periodically reviewed, and new editions are published. Between editions, amendments may be issued. Standards may also be withdrawn. It is important that readers assure themselves they are using a current Standard, which should include any amendments which may have been published since the Standard was purchased. Detailed information about Standards can be found by visiting the Standards Australia web site at www.standards.com.au and looking up the relevant Standard in the on-line catalogue. Alternatively, the printed Catalogue provides information current at 1 January each year, and the monthly magazine, The Australian Standard, has a full listing of revisions and amendments published each month. We also welcome suggestions for improvement in our Standards, and especially encourage readers to notify us immediately of any apparent inaccuracies or ambiguities. Contact us via email at mail@standards.com.au, or write to the Chief Executive, Standards Australia International Ltd, GPO Box 5420, Sydney, NSW 2001.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR 00366.

PREFACE
This Standard was prepared by the Standards Australia Committee MN-003, Aluminium Ores to supersede AS 2806.31987, Aluminium ores Sampling, Part 3: Preparation of samples. The objective of this Standard is to provide testing laboratories a means of preparing samples for the analysis of aluminium ores. This Standard is an adoption with national modifications and has been reproduced from ISO 6140:1991, Aluminium ores Preparation of samples. The ISO text has been modified (see Item (d) below) to allow greater variability in the provision of the minimum mass of samples. The affected text is indicated by a marginal bar. Statements expressed in mandatory terms in notes to the text are deemed to be requirements of this Standard.

As this Standard is reproduced from an International Standard, the following applies: (a) (b) (c) (d) Its number does not appear on each page of text and its identity is shown only on the cover and title page. In the source text this International Standard should read this Australian Standard. A full point should be substituted for a comma when referring to a decimal marker. Delete the fourth paragraph of Clause 9.1 and replace with the following: The provisions of 4.2 regarding minimum mass of samples shall be implemented or alternatively the masses referred to in Table 3 shall be implemented for physical testing operations. (e) ISO 8685, as referenced in Clause 2, was published in 1992. References to International Standards should be replaced by references to Australian Standards, as follows: Reference to International Standard ISO 565 Test sievesWoven metal wire cloth and perforated plateNominated sizes of apertures Aluminium oresExperimental determination of the heterogeneity of constitution Aluminium oresSampling procedures Aluminium oresDetermination of the moisture content of bulk material Australian Standard AS 1152 Specification for test sieves
