Summary:Further developments in the analysis of fluid inclusion decrepitates by ICP spectroscopy are outlined. As several mechansims of transfer of material into the plasma are feasible, it is important that the T of heating should be restricted to the T range of decrepitation. Reproducibility of the authors' analyses is usually better than 30% relative standard deviation, and most of this appears to be due to heterogeneity in the abundance of fluid inclusions. The ore-metal content of some hydrothermal fluids from SW England have been estimated, and values in the range of 100 to a few thousand ppm for Cu, Pb, Zn, Sn and B were obtained. The greatest potential for this method is in the field of routine mineral exploration. [P.Br.]
