Geochemical Symbol: Sr
Typical Detection Limit (Aqua Regia/ICP): 0.5-1 ppm
Typical Detection Limit (Neutron Activation): 0.05%


Frequency distributions of ICP values likely to be complete; for neutron activation, heavily truncated (censored)

Exploration Geochemical Applications
1. As a Pathfinder

None known

2. As an Aid to Geological Mapping

Strongly associated with calcium. May serve as "calcium surrogate" to indicate presence of calcareous rocks, if that element is not analyzed or heavily truncated (censored)
