Quantitative D-SIMS analysis of sub-microscopic gold in sulphide minerals

Deliverables:

  • Recommended 30 analyses per mineral. The study includes the following:
    • Classification of microscopic gold content (solid solution and colloidal-size) per morphological type
    • Simultaneous quantification of gold and arsenic content
    • Mapping of the gold and arsenic distribution within the mineral grains (optional)
    • Establishing a relationship (if any) between the gold and arsenic content and distribution
  • Written report issued within 15 business days of the sample delivery

Cost:
$3360 for 55 SIMS analyses
$3360 for 10 map plates (optional). Each plate includes images of Au, As, one matrix element and an optical microphotograph of the analysed rain.
