4Litho - Lithium Metaborate/Tetraborate Fusion - ICP and ICP/MS

A combination of packages Code 4B (lithium metaborate/tetraborate fusion ICP whole rock) and Code 4B2 (trace element ICP/MS)

 

Fused sample is diluted and analyzed by Perkin Elmer Sciex ELAN 6000, 6100 or 9000 ICP/MS. Three blanks and five controls (three before sample group and two after) are analyzed per group of samples. Duplicates are fused and analyzed every 15 samples. Instrument is recalibrated every 40 samples.

Code 4Litho options:

 

4LithoQuant:  Although intended primarily for unmineralized samples, mineralized samples can be analyzed. However data may be semiquantitative for chalcophile elements (Ag, As, Bi, Co, Cu, Mo, Ni, Pb, Sb, Sn, W and Zn).


A 1 g sample is digested with aqua regia and diluted to 250 ml volumetrically.  Appropriate international reference materials for the metals of interest are digested at the same time.  The samples and standards are analyzed on an Agilent 700 Series ICP .


Code 4B1 Recommended for accurate levels of base metals (Cu, Pb, Zn, Ni and Ag).

Code 4B-INAA is recommended for As, Bs, high W >100 ppm and Cr > 1,000 ppm. 

Code 5D : recommended for Sn >50 ppm.
