This paper discusses the influence of Fe-Ti oxides in particular titanomagnetite, a common constituent of many volcanic rocks, on Feox values and proposes an alternative method for determination of SRO Fe-constituents. Mineralogical analyses of fresh dolerite, separated magnetic fractions and single titanomagnetite grains were carried out using scanning electron microscopy, electron microprobe, and Mössbauer spectroscopy. Iron was selectively extracted using acid-ammonium oxalate (Feox), Na dithionite-citrate-bicarbonate (Fed) and Tiron (Fetiron). The Tiron extraction method is being recommended as a better alternative to the oxalate method to quantify amorphous/SRO Fe-constituents in soils and regoliths containing magnetic minerals, and especially to identify andic properties in soils on volcanic ash
