The Environmental Costs of Platinum-PGM Mining: An Excellent Case Study In Sustainable Mining

Abstract

The platinum group of metals (PGMs) possess a range of unique chemical and physical properties and are increasingly finding important uses in a wide variety of environmentally-related technologies (eg. catalytic converters, fuel cells, electronics). The typical ore grade for PGM mineralisation is similar to gold (g/t) but the processing is more akin to base… (More)
