Summary

This table reports major, minor, and trace element compositions of bulk drill core samples from the Duluth Complex, Minnesota. Major elements were measured using wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES); minor and trace elements were determined using ICP-AES, inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), and hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry (HGAAS). Total carbon, carbonate carbon, and total sulfur were also analyzed. Total carbon was measured by combustion followed by infrared detection on LECO instrumentation. Carbonate carbon in the bulk rock samples was determined as carbon dioxide by coulometric titration. Total sulfur was determined [...]

Purpose

Data were obtained in order to assess the acid-generating potential and acid-neutralizing potential of bulk rocks from the Duluth Complex using traditional acid-base accounting methods.
