Abstract:  The 57Fe Mössbauer, X-ray diffraction and magnetic susceptibility studies were carried on two samples, basic volcanic (basalt) and hyperbasal (dolerite) rocks, collected from Kundal area of Rajasthan, India to identify iron-bearing minerals. Room temperature Mössbauer parameters of basalt sample show the presence of hematite (Fe2O3), aluminium substituted magnesioferrite [Mg(Fe2-xAlx)O4] and illite. Iron is present as both Fe3+ and Fe2+ in illite. Temperature dependence of magnetic susceptibility measurements shows no transition around 120 K (Verway transition) for both the samples, indicating existence of (Mg, Al) substituted spinel ferrites. These results have been corroborated by X-diffraction and chemical analysis of the samples.
