X-Ray Fluorescence on M-3 Source Sand, M-3 and Sea Water Precipitate


Canadian mine tailings (M-3 source black sand) was tested in the XRF and revealed a plethora of metals but no gold, iridium or rhodium. 



Black sand contains:  vanadium, chromium, copper, nickel, iron, zinc,

arsenic, selenium, rhenium, tungsten, platinum, niobium, mercury,bismuth,

silver, lead, ruthenium, silicon, polonium, tin, antimony, and aluminum.

Ferromagnetic elements present: nickel, iron

Paramagnetic elements present: copper, silver, platinum


Because this is the starting material for the M-3 precipitate a sodium burn was performed on the black sand to first produce M-3.  This was dried and placed in the XRF to record an elemental analysis for examination.



M-3 contains: iron, polonium, zinc, aluminum, and silicon

Ferromagnetic elements present: iron


Pacific Ocean water sample was taken from 6 feet of water in Huntington Beach California.  The precipitate extracted at pH7.5 was examined in the XRF.



Pacific Ocean ppt sample contains: Calcium, Magnesium, potassium, mercury, gold

Possible monatomic elements:  Gold [blunted spectral line indication]


Analysis of black sand and m-3 monatom content based on presence of Al, Si and Iron:

Small likelihood that monatomic gold was present due to the fact that the indicator lines Al, Si and Fe were recorded in the expected place for the elements.


Analysis of Ocean ppt monatomic content:

Strong likelihood of monatomic gold.  Expected blunted spectral line in the correct position.
