Abstract: Several analytical methodologies have been developed for determining niobium, tantalum and titanium concentrations in the products of columbite tantalite chlorination from the San Luis Province (Argentina). The ore mixed with carbon was attacked with gaseous chlorine in different working conditions.[//]Abstract: Several analytical methodologies have been developed for determining niobium, tantalum and titanium concentrations in the products of columbite tantalite chlorination from the San Luis Province (Argentina).
