Nature distribution and recovery of platinum group minerals in Kambalda nickel ores
Study of concentrates and ore samples from the Kambalda nickel deposits has demonstrated the existence of a number of discrete platinum group element minerals.
Sperrylite occurs within massive ores whereas a number of discrete palladium minerals are concentrated in veins and alteration zones. There is some scope for recovery of PGE minerals by gravity methods.
