Download CSV file containing results from a checmical analysis of R30-00007. The chemical analysis was performed with Bruker Tracer III-SD pXRF instrument using the settings 40kV/10μA and filter (12 μm Al, 1 μm Ti, 6 μm Cu) and testing the sample for 120 seconds. Quantitative values in ppm for each trace element were obtained by calibrating the raw data using the 2008 MURR calibration software.
