Measurements from the Heavy Nuclei Experiment (Binns et al. 1981a) aboard the HEAO-3 satellite have been used to extract definite-abundance values for the even charge nuclei and upper limit values for the less abundant odd charge nuclei. Individual peaks in the charge spectrum for even charge nuclei over this charge region are observed and the cosmic ray abundances obtained from this charge spectrum are compared with abundances characteristic of the solar system and with a solar system r process.
