    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    These test methods cover the determination of total carbon and sulfur and acid-base characteristics in metal bearing ores and related materials such as leach residues, tailings, and waste rock .

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1These test methods cover the determination of total carbon and sulfur and acid-base characteristics in metal bearing ores and related materials such as leach residues, tailings, and waste rock within the following ranges:

    Analyte

    Application Range, %

    Quantitative Range, %

    Total Carbon

    0 to 10

    0.08 to 10

    Total Sulfur

    0 to 8.8

    0.023 to 8.8


    Note 1The test methods were tested over the following ranges:

    Total Carbon

    0.01 % to 5.87 %

    Total Sulfur

    0.0002 % to 4.70 %

    Residual Carbon from Pyrolysis

    0.002 % to 4.97 %

    Residual Sulfur from Pyrolysis

    0.014 % to 1.54 %

    Pyrolysis Loss Sulfur

    0 % to 4.42 %

    Hydrochloric Acid Insoluble Carbon

    0.025 % to 0.47 %

    Hydrochloric Acid Loss Carbon

    0 % to 5.78 %

    Hydrochloric Acid Insoluble Sulfur

    0.012 % to 4.20 %

    Acid Neutralization Potential Acidity Titration

    -1.0 % to 100 %

    Acid Neutralization Potential Acidity Titration Low Range

    -1.0 % to 2 % CaCO3

    Nitric Acid Insoluble Sulfur

    0.006 % to 0.924 %

    Nitric Acid Loss Sulfur

    -0.08 % to 4.19 %

    Sodium Carbonate Insoluble Sulfur

    0.007 % to 3.78 %


    1.2The quantitative ranges for the partial decomposition test methods are dependent on the mineralogy of the samples being tested. The user of these test methods is advised to conduct an interlaboratory study in accordance with Practice E1601 on the test methods selected for use at a particular mining site, in order to establish the quantitative ranges for these test methods on a site-specific basis.

    1.3The test methods appear in the following order:

    Sections

    Carbon and Sulfur, Total

    10.1-10.9

    Carbon and Sulfur, Residual from Pyrolysis

    10.10-10.18

    Carbon and Sulfur, Hydrochloric Acid Insoluble

    10.19-10.27

    Acid Neutralization Potential Acidity Titration

    10.28-10.36

    Acid Neutralization Potential Acidity Titration Low Range

    10.37-10.46

    Sulfur, Nitric Acid Insoluble

    10.47-10.55

    Sulfur, Sodium Carbonate Insoluble

    10.56-10.64


    1.4The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

    1.5This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific warning statements are given in Section 6.
