Carbonatite whole-rock and calcite geochemistry from the Bear Lodge alkaline complex, Wyoming and Mountain Pass mine, California

August 2, 2019

Whole-rock and calcite geochemical data are reported for twelve carbonatite samples collected from the Bear Lodge alkaline complex, Wyoming and from the Mountain Pass mine, California. Calcite geochemical data was collected using electron microprobe and laser ablation inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) analyses. Reported whole-rock data was measured by inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), ion selective electrode-fluoride (ISE-F), and wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF). Geochemical data are presented in downloadable .csv files. Spatial data of sample collection sites are provided as polygons in a downloadable Esri shape (.shp) file.
