Abstract Preview

ISO 10378:2016 specifies a fire assay gravimetric and flame atomic absorption spectrometric method for the determination of the mass fraction of gold and silver in copper, lead, and zinc sulfide concentrates as follows.

- Copper concentrates

The method is applicable to the determination of mass fractions of gold from 0,5 g/t to 300 g/t and of mass fractions of silver from 25 g/t to 1 500 g/t in copper sulfide concentrates containing mass fractions of copper from 15 % to 60 %.

- Lead concentrates

The method is applicable to the determination of mass fractions of gold from 0,1 g/t to 25 g/t and of mass fractions of silver from 200 g/t to 3 500 g/t in lead sulfide concentrates containing mass fractions of lead from 10 % to 80 %.

- Zinc concentrates

The method is applicable to the determination of mass fractions of gold from 0,1 g/t to 12 g/t and of mass fractions of silver from 10 g/t to 800 g/t in zinc sulfide concentrates containing mass fractions of zinc up to 60 %.
