Abstract

Burlinson (2013) questions the veracity of the H2 concentrations reported for fluid inclusion extracts from minerals in the Idaho cobalt belt (Table 2; Landis and Hofstra, 2012) and suggests that they are an analytical artifact of electron-impact mass spectrometry. He also declares that H2 should not be present in fluid inclusions because it is invariably lost by diffusion and is never detected in fluid inclusions by laser Raman. We welcome this opportunity to reply and maintain that the reported H2 contents are accurate. Below we explain why Burlinson’s criticisms are invalid.
