Abstract

The PURPOSE of this note is to announce the availability of apatite and zircon from a third collection of the Oligocene Fish Canyon Tuff (FC-3). Apatite and zircon separated from the Fish Canyon Tuff have prove to be a useful standard for fission-track dating, both for interlaboratory comparisons and for checking procedures within a laboratory. In May 1981, about 540 kg of Fish Canyon Tuff were collected for mineral separation. Approximately 7. 5 g of apatite, 6. 5 g of zircon, and 89 g of sphene were recovered from this collection. This new material is now ready for distribution.
