What is the best way to mount white mica separates?

I have detrital mica separates that I would like to mount in EpoThin resin for microprobe analysis and I would simply like to know the best method for mounting them. With zircons you can mount on double sided tape and then simply pour the resin over them. But with micas I am worried that they will not peel away easily from the tape once the resin has cured. I am also concerned about polishing them. Any advice would be much appreciated.
