X-Ray Assay Laboratories (lake sediment) LOI at 900°C

X-Ray Assay Laboratories, lake sediment; LOI at 900°C

General Methodology:

Loss on ignition (900C) was determined using a 500 mg sample. The sample, weighed into a 30 mL beaker, was placed in a cold muffle furnace and brought up to 900oC over a period of 2-3 hours. The sample was left at this temperature for 4 hours, then allowed to cool to room temperature for weighing.
