Semiquantitative emission spectrographic analyses for 30 elements and atomic absorption analysis for zinc on 98 soil samples are reported here in detail. Location for all samples are in Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates. A few samples of soil developed on Lower Devonian sandstone and chert contain more barium and zinc than soils on other formations but do not suggest the occurrence of economic concentrations of either element.
