Platinum-Group Metals Statistics and Information

They regarded platinum as an unwanted impurity in the silver they were mining. The catalytic properties of the six platinum group metals (PGM)– iridium, osmium, palladium, platinum, rhodium, and ruthenium – are outstanding. Platinum's wear and tarnish resistance characteristics are well suited for making fine jewelry. Other distinctive properties include resistance to chemical attack, excellent high-temperature

Platinum Group Elements - MIT

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). As a result, even though the concentration of PGEs is extremely small, these mines
