Abstract: The recent development of multiple-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS) and increasing use of the technique have created the need for well-characterized rock standards, especially for isotopic systems where no internal fractionation correction can be applied. This paper presents a careful leaching experiment on the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reference materials BHVO-1 and BHVO-2 (Hawaiian basalts) and documents the evidence for contamination of the rock powders during processing. This contamination accounts for the difference in Pb isotopic ratios of BHVO-1 and BHVO-2 as well as for their lack of homogeneity both in Pb isotopic compositions and in some trace element contents.
