Abstract

Neutron-induced prompt gamma activation analysis (PGAA) has been used to analyze ocean floor geothermal vent-generated samples that are composed of mixed metal sulfides, silicates and aluminosilicates. The modern application of the PGAA technique is discussed and elemental analytical results are given for 25 elements found in the samples. The elemental determinations in the samples are consistent with the expected mineralogical compositions, and very consistent results are obtained for comparable samples. Special sensitivity to trace quantities of hydrogen, boron, cadmium, dysprosium, gadolinium and samarium is discussed.
