OREAS 353

OREAS 353 is a certified reference material (CRM) prepared from a Pb-Ag concentrate sample sourced from South32 Ltd’s Cannington mine plant. The stratabound, metasediment hosted (Broken Hill Type) deposit is located ~200 kms south-east of Mount Isa in north-west Queensland, Australia. The major sulphides occur as argentiferous galena and sphalerite with subordinate magnetite-pyrrhotite and minor marcasite and arsenopyrite-lollingite-chalcopyrite. OREAS 353 is certified for:

  • Lead by ethylenediamminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) with titration finish
  • Silver by reduced charge, fire assay with gravimetric finish
  • Moisture (H2O-) at 105°C by thermogravimetry
  • Full ICP-OES & MS elemental suites by 4-acid digestion
  • Full ICP-OES elemental suite by peroxide fusion
  • S and C by infrared combustion furnace
