Abstract

This was the first study of its kind, by the Commonwealth team. The study included demonstrations of the dithizone tests for traces of some heavy metals in the field environment, of operational and sampling procedures, and geochemical reconnaissance. Several reconnaissance traverses were sampled and examined. Extractable forms of copper and, in a very presumptive manner, extractable forms of lead and zinc were sought in the test materials. In addition, tests for copper, lead and zinc were made in some ignited and fused specimens. The testing procedure and results are described in this report.
