Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Activation Laboratories Limited, Ancaster, Ontario

Till samples (1994) were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker.  The <63 µm fraction was analysed for 35 trace elements using enhanced instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and for 7 trace elements (Ag, Cd, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn) using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES).  Analysis of Sn was performed by sodium hydroxide (NaOH) fusion followed by ICP-AES.  Mercury analysis was done by cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (Hg-CVAAS).  The analyses were performed by ActLabs Ltd. in Ancaster, Ontario
