Platinum group element (PGE) deposits

  • Anthony J. Naldrett

Abstract

PGE accessible to mankind are derived from the earth’s mantle, with possibly a component coming from the core. This chapter is concerned with (a) the distribution and behavior of PGE in the mantle and in magmas derived from the mantle, (b) the characteristics of deposits derived directly or indirectly from these magmas, and (c) the methods by which, and environments in which the PGE have been concentrated.
