It is shown that X-ray fluorescence method can be utilized to determine composition of steels used for manufacturing the rockbreaking tools. A conclusion is derived that one of the possible cause of low wear resistance of miner bits in «Vorkutaugol» is their bodies manufacturing from the steels, which do not meet the Mining Code specifications.
