OREAS 47

OREAS 47 is an augmented Canadian glacial basal till sourced from outside of Chibougamau, Quebec. The till composition reflects the geochemistry of the surrounding Archean greenstone belts and felsic intrusives with minor additions of various ores (PGE + REE + Li) and concentrates (base metals) to achieve anomalous concentration levels. Cobbles were removed prior to processing and all material has undergone sterilisation. A pure glacial till is also available (see OREAS 46).

Twenty commercial analytical laboratories participated in the following program:
 
  • Gold by 25-50g fire assay;
  • Instrumental neutron activation analysis for Au on 20 x 85mg subsamples to confirm homogeneity (1 laboratory only);
  • Gold by 15-50g aqua regia digestion;
  • Fusion with full ICP-OES and ICP-MS elemental suites;
  • Thermogravimetry for LOI at 1000° C;
  • Four acid digestion for full ICP-OES and ICP-MS elemental suites;
  • Aqua regia digestion using 0.15 to 50g sample weights for full ICP-OES and ICP-MS elemental suites.
