A method has been developed for the determination of Re, Se, As, Sb, Pt, Au, Te and Rare Earth elements in samples collected at various stages during the production of copper. Instrumental neutron activation analysis, along with a multielement sequential procedure for radiochemical separation of these analytes has been worked out and the results for various samples are discussed.
