O'Gorman, J.V.; Suhr, N.H.; Walker, P.L.

This study deals with the use of three different analytical methods for the determination of mercury in coals: (a) double gold amalgamation, flameless atomic absorption, (b) neutron activation and (c) combustion-solution, flameless atomic absorption. Ten coal samples of varying rank were analyzed and comparisons are drawn between the various analytical procedures. The distribution of mercury in coals is discussed briefly.
