Magmatic sulfide deposits consist of pyrrhotite, pentlandite, chalcopyrite (± pyrite), and platinum-group minerals (PGM). Understanding the distribution of the chalcophile and platinum-group element (PGE) concentrations among the base metal sulfide phases and PGM is important both for the petrogenetic models of the ores and for the efficient extraction of the PGE. Typically, pyrrhotite and pentlandite host much of the PGE, except Pt which forms Pt minerals. Chalcopyrite does not host PGE and… Expand
Distribution of chalcophile and platinum-group elements among pyrrhotite, pentlandite, chalcopyrite and cubanite from the Noril’sk-Talnakh ores: implications for the formation of platinum-group minerals
In most magmatic sulfide deposits, platinum-group elements (PGE) are found both within the structure of the base metal sulfides (BMS), pyrrhotite (Po), pentlandite (Pn), chalcopyrite (Ccp) andExpand
An overview of chalcophile element contents of pyrrhotite, pentlandite, chalcopyrite, and pyrite from magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE sulfide deposits
We have compiled the trace element concentrations in pyrrhotite, pentlandite, chalcopyrite, and pyrite from magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE ore deposits with the aim of understanding their petrogenesis andExpand
Platinum-group elements-bearing pyrite from the Aguablanca Ni-Cu sulphide deposit (SW Spain): a LA-ICP-MS study
Despite the fact that pyrite is a relatively common phase in Ni-Cu-Platinum-Group Elements (PGE) magmatic sulphide deposits, the trace element content of the pyrite has been neglected in the studiesExpand
Platinum-group element concentrations in pyrite from the Main Sulfide Zone of the Great Dyke of Zimbabwe

Chalcophile and platinum-group element distribution in pyrites from the sulfide-rich pods of the Lac des Iles Pd deposits, Western Ontario, Canada: Implications for post-cumulus re-equilibration of the ore and the use of pyrite compositions in exploration
The Lac des Iles Pd-deposits are atypical within the scope of platinum-group element (PGE) deposits. This is because the deposits do not resemble a classical PGE deposit in a number of ways: theExpand
