An X-ray fluorescence analysis study of iron, zinc, rubidium, strontium, and lead in ashed vertebral column whole bone samples of 51 sudden death victims in Western Australia gave median values of 893, 213, 25, 108, and 25 ppm, respectively. Highly significant concentration-age Spearman correlations were observed for iron-age (rs = 0.45, P less than .004), Zn-age (0.43, P less than .006), and lead-age (0.63, P less than .001), the mean per annum rates of increase being 26, 0.4, and 0.8 ppm, respectively, and marked concentration-concentration correlations were found for iron-lead (0.44, P less than .003) and strontium (0.30, P less than .06). The median zinc concentrations for the male and female subsets are 216 and 205 ppm, respectively; the corresponding values for strontium are 100 and 120 ppm.
