Fluids Minerals & Melts: investigating hydrothermal processes using laser ablation-ICPMS techniques

Laser ablation-based micro-analysis is rapidly revolutionizing our understanding of ore deposits by enabling precise trace element and isotopic analyses with high spatial resolution and high sensitivity. LAICPMS trace element and isotopic analyses yield insight into a range of processes relevant to ore deposit formation such as fluid, metal, and magma sources; fluid and magma compositional evolution; fluid-rock reaction pathways; ore and gangue mineral precipitation mechanisms; and metal partitioning among fluids, melts, and minerals. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss applications of and demonstrate the analysis of trace elements and isotopic ratios in fluid inclusions, melt inclusions, and minerals. The workshop will include both lectures and hands on demonstrations. Lectures will detail instrumentation and application of LAICPMS techniques to solving problems relevant to ore deposit genesis. The hands-on portion of the course will demonstrate the operation of a 193 nm eximer laser used in conjunction with both a multi-collector ICPMS instruments for the in situ analysis of S isotopes and a quadrupole ICPMS for the analysis of trace elements in fluid and melt inclusions.
