WGNHS conducts pXRF analysis of drill core, hand samples, and well cuttings for a service fee. Please see below for details. We look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with you.
Note: The pXRF lab has limited capacity, and priority goes to WGNHS projects.
The WGNHS pXRF lab is located at our main office on Mineral Point Road in Madison.
The pXRF lab charges a per-sample rate. The base rate, which includes running the sample and packaging the data, applies to ALL analyses, regardless of the type of sample. Samples that require additional preparation (e.g. water well cuttings) are charged an additional sample-prep rate to account for expendables. Repeat analyses (duplicates, triplicates, etc.) will incur the base-rate charge per analysis, but will not be charged the sample-prep rate, regardless of sample type. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. WGNHS staff, please read this KB article before emailing the lab.
Note: The pXRF lab only charges for running samples; any charges that may apply for pulling samples from MHREC are charged separately.
