Mineralogical siting of platinum-group elements in

2014-10-28  The Bushveld Complex in South Africa hosts the world’s largest resources of platinum-group elements (PGEs), which are mainly mined from three ore bodies, namely the Merensky Reef, the UG-2 chromitite, and the Platreef. In these ores, the PGEs are bimodally distributed, occurring both as discrete platinum-group minerals (PGMs) and hosted by sulfides. The presence of PGEs in sulfides

Platinum Group Elements MIT

2012-12-11  Geology and Mining. There are large deposits of platinum group elements in the Merensky and Upper Group 2 reefs in South Africa ("South Africa"). These deposits were formed from silicate magma intrusions. Immiscible sulfide liquid saturates the magma and attracts PGEs along with copper and nickel (Zientek, 2012).
