Sample Submission

Before mailing any samples, please contact the lab manager, Sebastien Huot, at, to discuss sample type, quantity, and analytical needs. Questions about sampling requirements can be found here. Upon agreement, complete and submit one sample submission form per sample. Shipments must include an inventory list of samples with the name and address of the shipper.

Samples can be mailed to:

Illinois State Geological Survey
ATTN: Sebastien Huot

Specify if you wish samples to be returned to you. If so, include a FedEx or UPS account number in your correspondence. The quartz and feldspar minerals and the rest of the sample may be temporarily retained by the lab, however, we bear no responsibility for archiving your samples after results have been reported. Practically, we will generally retain submitted samples while there is available space in the lab.
