Nickel-copper sulfide ore deposits are found at the base of mafic and ultramafic bodies. All their host rocks, except the Sudbury Igneous Complex, are thought to be mantle derived melts. The Sudbury Igneous Complex is thought to be the product of complete melting of continental crust. In the case of mantle-derived magmas, a high degree of partial melting of the mantle serves to enrich the silicate magma in Ni and platinum group elements (PGE). This magma must then be transported to the crust… Expand
