Introduction Chromite deposits of the Niquelandia layered intrusion (Central Goias, Brazil) are not widely dealt with in the literature, in particular, not much is known about the real extent and nature of the Platinum-group element (PGE) mineralization associated with them. White et al. (1971) reported (Pt+Pd+Rh) concentrations of 160-3420 ppb for one(More)
Several chromite deposits located in the in the South and Southeast Arms of Sulawesi, Indonesia, have been investigated by electron microprobe. According to the variation of the Cr# = Cr/(Cr + Fe3+), the chromite composition varies from Cr-rich to Al-rich. Small platinum-group minerals (PGM), 1–10 μm in size, occur in the chromitites. The most abundant PGM(More)
The Cedrolina chromitite body (Goiás-Brazil) is concordantly emplaced within talc-chlorite schists that correspond to the poly-metamorphic product of ultramafic rocks inserted in the Pilar de Goiás Greenstone Belt (Central Brazil). The chromite ore displays a nodular structure consisting of rounded and ellipsoidal orbs (up to 1.5 cm in size), often strongly(More)
Gold has been found in the Cyprus-type volcanogenic massive sulfide ore (VMS) deposits of Corchia ophiolite (Parma province, Italy) in the Cantiere Donnini, Speranza and Pozzo mining sites. At Cantiere Donnini and Speranza, the mineralization occurs at the contact between pillow lava and sedimentary rocks. The Pozzo mineralization is hosted by a(More)
One grain, about 100×80 μm in size, occurring in chromitite associated with the layered sequence of the Nurali mafic-ultramafic complex (Southern Urals, Russia) was investigated by electron-microprobe analyses and Raman spectroscopy. The grain is characterized by a spotty, rugged appearance and chemical zoning from which two compositions were calculated:(More)
Pyrophanite (MnTiO3) has been discovered for the first time in Argentina, associated with metamorphosed Fe ore in the Sierra de Comechingones, Province of Córdoba. The Fe ore mainly consists of magnetite, and contains large grains of Ti-rich magnetite, showing a complex unmixing assemblage composed of pyrophanite, manganoan ilmenite, an aluminous spinel,(More)
An electron microprobe study has been carried out on platinum-group minerals, accessory phases, and chromite in several chromite deposits of the Alapaevsk ophiolite (Central Urals, Russia) namely the Bakanov Kluch, Kurmanovskoe, Lesnoe, 3-d Podyony Rudnik, Bol’shaya Kruglyshka, and Krest deposits. These deposits occur in partially to totally serpentinized(More)
