1999 Gold Bulletin  
developed a very precise method of analysis for gold using flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry (FAAS). Two standards are prepared: one has slightly below and another has slightly above the sample absorbance, and the difference between the standards is small. The method was applied to the determination of gold and was found to have a good accuracy and precision. The relative standard deviation was only 0.2%-0.1 % for microgram per litre concentrations of gold; and the method is simple and practical.
