Two methods for determination of boron in silicates are described. The results of analyses of 83 samples by both methods were computed and subjected to statistical evaluation; the methods were shown to be identical, within experimental error, in precision and accuracy, and the results obtained by one method are interchangeable with results obtained by the other.
