Lithium Metaborate Tetraborate

This fusion process uses lithium metaborate and lithium tetraborate mixed with the sample in graphite crucibles and fused in induction furnaces at 1150 degrees C. The fused crucible is dropped into a mixture of 5% nitric acid. The resultant molten mixture is dissolved and will result in total metals and is ideal for lithogeochemistry including major oxides and trace elements including REE and other high field strength elements.
