Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Bondar Clegg and Company Limited

Till samples were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker.  The <63 µm fraction was analysed for 34 trace trace elements using instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA).  Atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) was used to analyse 9 elements + Mo, V (nitrous oxide acetylene flame) + Sn (hydride atomic absorption spectrometry).  As and Sb were determined by atomic absorption spectrometry using a hydride evolution method (HY-AAS).  Fluorine was determined by using a using a fluoride ion specific electrode (F ISE).  Mercury analysis was done by cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (Hg-CVAAS).  Uranium was determined using a neutron activation method with delayed neutron counting (U NADNC).  Loss on ignition (LOI) was determined using a 500 mg sample.  The analyses were performed by Bondar Clegg and Company Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia.
