Controls on platinum group element variation in mafic and ultramafic magmatic systems
Total Grant Value
2007 - 2010
This study investigated the mechanism of platinum-group element (PGE) fractionation in ultramafic systems, focussing on the role of chromite.
Samples from a wide range of occurrences were analysed to assess potential controls on PGE behaviour such as geochemical affinities, age, emplacement styles, metamorphic grade and nickel sulphide mineralisation endowment and style.
Keywords: platinum group elements, magmatic systems, mafic, ultramafic
