Bondar Clegg (lake sediment) INAA – flux 5.3x10**11 (Au + Wt)

Bondar Clegg, lake sediment; Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis – flux 5.3x10**11 (gold, weight)

General Methodology:

The weighed sample (generally 5 to 10 g) is irradiated for 20 minutes in a neutron flux whose approximate density is 5.3x10^11 neutrons/square cm/second. Counting is begun seven days after irradiation.  The counting time is somewhat variable (6 to 11 minutes) and is matrix dependent.  Counting is done on a germanium-lithium  co-axial counter.  The counting data are accumulated on a VAX computer and are subsequently converted to concentrations.  Numerous international reference samples are irradiated with each batch of routine samples.
