Abstract The Earth's mantle is the principal reservoir from which platinum-group element (PGE) concentrations in the crust are derived. The transfer of the PGE is accomplished by two main methods, first the development of mantle partial melts and their intrusion into the crust, and second the emplacement of mantle slabs in the subduction/collision zones. The first mechanism is far more important than the second. Once in the crust, a number of mechanisms serve to concentrate the PGE sufficiently… CONTINUE READING
