Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Activation Laboratories Limited, Ancaster, Ontario

Till samples were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker.  The <63 µm fraction was analysed for 33 trace elements (including Sr) using instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA).  Ag and Cd were analysed using aqua-regia atomic absorption spectroscopy (AR-AAS).  Mercury analysis was done by cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (Hg-CVAAS).  The analyses were performed by ActLabs Ltd. in Ancaster, Ontario
