Abstract: Proton induced x-ray emission (PIXE) and neutron activation analysis (NAA) techniques are used to estimate the concentrations of trace quantities of thorium and uranium in powdered rock or ore samples. The accuracy of the two methods is compared in both a carbon matrix and a variety or ore matrices over the concentration range 1 to 10 000 µg g-1. Under the test conditions the PIXE and NAA concentration estimates for any individual sample in this range are found to be the same within a 3o standard error of 9 per cent.
