Mineralogical Studies

 Dr. Anthony Kampf conducts research principally in the areas of descriptive mineralogy, crystal chemistry, and structural crystallography, focusing on the characterization of new or inadequately described minerals. He investigates minerals from many different types of deposits but has longstanding research interests in phosphate minerals, particularly those occurring in pegmatite deposits and other oxysalt minerals, and mainly those occurring in the near-surface oxidation zones of metallic ore deposits.
