Critical to all of this work is the reliable chemical/mineralogical analysis of collected samples. The availability of well characterized geochemical reference materials is an important part of any analysis program. Having reference materials that are similar in composition to the unknown samples provides the highest degree of reliability.

We carried out geochemical and mineralogical analyses on fault-zone rocks from the Anko section of the Median Tectonic Line in Nagano Prefecture, Japan, to investigate coseismic physicochemical processes in the fault zone. The latest fault zone in the Anko section contains cataclasite, fault breccia, and fault gouge of granitic composition, and brecciated basic schist.

Sample description. Brine-saturated Hawkesbury sandstone samples were used to represent the saline aquifer formation, and their possible geochemical and mineralogical alterations upon CO 2 injection were investigated. The sandstone samples were collected from the potential Gosford site for carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the Sydney basin, a formation belonging to the early Triassic period.

detected as accessory minerals. The geochemical data of bulk samples reflect the enrichment of Al2O3, SiO2, Zr, Ba, Sr, V, Cr and Ni. The major oxides reflect the dominant mineralogical composition and the weathering history of the source rocks. The LREE are more enriched than HREE due to the dominance of monazite.
