Abstract A facility for neutron capture prompt gamma-ray activation analysis, installed on a curved thermal neutron guide at the ILL High Flux Reactor, is described. Elemental sensitivities for B, Sm and Gd have been measured. The performance of the facility has been assessed by the measurement of these trace elements in eleven USGS geochemical reference samples and comparison of the results with existing values. Preliminary concentrations of B, Sm and Gd are also reported for twelve French GRS.
