Abstract

Two techniques: Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and Proton induced X-ray emission (PIXE) were used to characterized geological samples collected from North-Western Nigeria; Result obtained indicated that PIXE is more proficient for the analysis of Vanadium. It was also verified from the result that elements with Qo above ten are better analyzed with INAA. Other elements characterized include Au, Pb, V, P, K, Ca, Ti, Cr, Mn, Mg, Al, Si, and Dy.
