Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Quebec Geoscience Centre Laboratories

Samples were analysed for 12 trace elements by X-ray fluorescence (XRF). The samples were analysed for mercury (Hg) content twice, using atomic fluorescence spectroscopy (AFS) after digestion in either strong (sulphuric + nitric) or weak (hydrochloric) acids. Analyses were performed by laboratories at the Quebec Geoscience Centre (QCG).

Analytical Suites:
