A facility using a californium neutron source and a method for the neutron activation analysis of gold were developed. The sensitivity of the determination is 0.1 g/t. The sources of random and systematic errors have been studied. It has been concluded that in prospection and evaluation of gold ore deposits, the traditional test tube analysis for gold may be replaced with the developed method.
