Summary:The construction and use of a sliding table for the rapid evaluation of fission-track records and their grain-for-grain matching with the relevant polished thin-sections are described. The fission-track record and the polished thin-section are placed side by side into a sliding frame, aligned and switched alternately into the field of view. The unobscured fission-track record allows a much better study of the distribution of radioactive elements than is possible using the usual detector-and-ore-sandwich technique. Rapid semiquantitative measurements of the concentrations of these elements are possible. [L.C.C.]
