Sulphur isotopic evidence for the genesis of the Au-Ag-Sb-W mineralization of the Fairbanks mining district, AlaskaMetz, P.A. (University of Alaska Mineral Industry Research Laboratory, 1984-10)Sulphur dioxide from sulphides was extracted for analysis by oxidation with Cuprous oxide at 1070º C, using essentially the method described by Robinson and Kusakabe (1975). The isotopic analyses of the purified sulphur dioxide were made on a modified Micromass 602 mass spectrometer with heated inlet system. The results were corrected for isobaric interference assuming a constant oxygen isotopic content and instrumental crosstalk (Coleman, 1977; 1980) and expressed in conventional del notation with respect to the Canon Diablo meteoritic troilite standard.
