GSC Leco

GSC Ottawa Leco induction furnace, carbonate analysis

General Methodology:

Carbon was analysed using a Leco induction furnace.  Total carbon is reported as the percentage of carbon in the total sample.  Organic carbon is the percentage of carbon after treatment in hot HCl.  Non-organic carbon can be calculated by subtracting “organic carbon” from “total carbon”. The % CaCO3 equivalent can be calculated from ( “Non-org carbon” / 12 ) x 100 (where 100 = atomic weight of CaCO3).
