Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: X-Ray Assay Laboratories, Toronto (XRAL)

Till samples were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker. The <63 µm (silt and clay) fraction was analysed for 28 trace elements using instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA).  Mercury analysis was performed by cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (Hg-CVAAS).  The analyses were performed by X-Ray Assay Laboratories (XRAL) in Toronto, Ontario.
