A purely instrumental neutron activation analysis method, using high resolution gamma-ray spectrometry with intrinsic Ge and Ge(Li) detectors, has been used for the analysis of trace elements in copper concentrate samples. Seven rare earth elements and eight other trace elements were determined with good precision. Standard rocks were also analyzed to check the analytical procedure, and the results obtained are in good agreement with literature values.
