Coarse-grained rutile from regolith in Ebensuk west of Tinto, Cameroon

Coarse rutile with some grains exceeding 32 mm was recovered from regolith excavated from three pits (ABC) at Ebensuk. The rutile concentration ranges from 2.53 kg/m3 of regolith material in Pit C to 2.83 kg/m3 in Pit B with an average of 2.66 kg/m3. The rutile is black, longitudinally striated, with a metallic to adamantine luster and hard. Results of grain size (Z) analysis show that the rutile crystals range in size...

LA-ICP-MS and EMP relationships in pyrite grains from Barberton Greenstone Belt, South Africa: An attempt for quantification

Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) count per seconds (cps) results were tested for quantification, using the same spot analyses of Electron Microprobe Analyses (EMP) in weight percentage (wt. %); they were obtained from selected pyrite grains from Sheba, New Consort, and Fairview gold mines of the Barberton Greenstone Belt (BGB). Theoretically, data obtained from the same pyrite...
