This peak might be due to the formation of small amount of europium oxide (DB card number 00-046-0427) (Figure 1(e)).
Individual heavy rare earth element grades were 0.03 kg/t europium oxide, 0.27 kg/t gadolinium oxide, 0.05 kg/t terbium oxide, 0.29 kg/t dysprosium oxide, 0.06 kg/t holmium oxide, 0.15 kg/t erbium oxide, 0.02 kg/t thulium oxide, 0.11 kg/t ytterbium oxide, 0.01 kg/t lutetium oxide and 1.88 kg/t yttrium oxide.
Europium oxide with high purity (99.99%)was purchased from Shanghai Yuelong Nonferrous Metal (China).
