These sample will be analyzed mineralogically (petrography, X-ray diffraction) and geochemically (Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry, X-Ray Fluorescence) to identify and characterize the ore deposits and the metal production waste.
The blocks are chemically, isotopically, and mineralogically similar to the host rhyolite.
