Geochemical Symbol: Sb
Typical Detection Limit (Aqua Regia/ICP): 2-5 ppm
Typical Detection Limit (Neutron Activation): 0.2 ppm


Heavy truncation (censoring) likely with Aqua Regia/ICP; INAA results may be amenable to statistical treatment. True anomalies are can be readily detected by both methods.

Exploration Geochemical Applications
1. As a Pathfinder

Antimony is one of the principal pathfinders for almost all varieties of gold deposits.

2. As an Aid to Geological Mapping
