AS SOON as a coal sample is received by the laboratory, an initial inventory should be performed. The shipping containers should be inspected for damage or perforations in the plastic bagging that could affect the integrity of the sample. Each sample should be clearly identified and accompanied with a set of processing and analytical instructions. Any problems identified during the check-in inventory should be reported to the field collector before proceeding with any further sample preparation.
