To estimate phase and elemental composition of minerals used in industry, we have applied Electron Probe Microanalysis (EPMA) with standard and single particles approach. The quantitative analysis of the phase and elements content in the minerals used for chemical production is very important for the proper adjustment of chemical reactions. The composition of minerals can change depending on the place where they are mined and their phase and elements content is difficult to evaluate using standard approach. The example of ilmenite and titanium slag which are valuable sources of titanium widely used in industry of pigments production will be presented.
