X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry is used worldwide in geological material analysis. This study, applies polarized energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (PEDXRF) Spectrometer and compares in the samples of Rize-Cayeli and Mardin pyrite ores. The samples of pyrite ore were collected from the Rize and Mardin in Turkey. The prepared samples were analyzed using a PEDXRF spectrometer. The result of the analysis shows the presence of many elements including rare-earth elements (from Na to Th). The accuracy and precision of the technique for chemical analysis is demonstrated by analyzing USGS standards, GEOL, GBW 7109 and GBW-7309 sediment. (C) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
