INTRODUCTION: During recent years the development of analytical methods in which selective ion electrodes play a key role has permitted a number of elements (fluorine, sulphur, chlorine, etc.), of considerable interest to the applied geochemist, to be determined fairly simply and rapidly, over considerable concentration ranges. This prompted the writers to consider the possibility of using fluorine as a path-finder element during the search for primary, sub-outcropping tin deposits in Peninsular Malaysia. The results of the initial study form the substance of this note.
