Abstract

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>In this paper results of investigation on the variability of REE contents in the clayey rocks accompanying selected coal seams from Zaleskie and Ruda beds of western part of Upper Silesia Coal Basin (USCB) have been presented. 75 samples have been analysed from the claystones coexisting with coal seams 405 and 408 collected from the USCB area. Contents of selected REE have been assessed with a use of the Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA). In regard to the constraints of this method following elements underwent evaluation: scandium (Sc), lanthanum (La), cerium (Ce), neodymium (Nd), samarium (Sm), Europium (Eu), terbium (Tb), ytterbium (Yb), and lutetium (Lu). Contents of yttrium (Y) was determined with a use of the Fusion-Inductively-Coupled Plasma (FUSICP) method.</jats:p><jats:p>In all featured groups of claystone (claystone, sandy claystone and siderite claystone) the highest, although diverse content of SiO</jats:p>
