Gold fingerprinting

From: Mark Vine <100436.3447>
Date: Thursday, July 6, 1995
A new new laser fingerprinting process has been developed by John
Watling and Hugh Herbert of the Western Australia's Department of
Minerals and Energy in Perth. The gold fingerprinting technique
determines the geological source or origin of metal in artifacts
without visibly damaging the artifact.

Details appear in this week's New Scientist magazine
