Get this from a library. Platinum and allied metal deposits of Canada. [J J O'Neill; Henry Cecil Gunning]. Platinum-Nickel-Chromium Deposits: Geology, Exploration, and Reserve Base is the first reference book to combine information on the discovery of numerous minerals within existing deposits.

This book recognizes the close affinity and great natural coexistence of platinum, palladium, chromium, nickel, copper, gold, and silver hosted by unique stratigraphy (mafic-ultramafic intrusive of layered.

In Canada inplatinum was discovered in the nickel-copper ores of Ontario. Between the end of the First World War and the s, Canada was the world's major source of supply.

In a farmer in the Transvaal province of South Africa discovered several nuggets of platinum in a riverbed. Following this up, the geologist Hans Merensky discovered two deposits each of around kilometres in length. Platinum mining in Canada began after the metal was discovered in Ontario in among nickel–copper ores.

It can usually be found alongside other platinum-group metals (PGMs). Purchase The Platinum Group Metals Industry - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNA History of Platinum and its Allied Metals.

Magmatic Nickel Deposits. A magmatic deposit is one in which the metal concentration takes place primarily at the same time as the formation and emplacement of the magma. Most of the nickel mined in Canada comes from magmatic deposits such as those in Sudbury (Ontario), Thompson (Manitoba) (Figure ), and Voisey’s Bay (Labrador).Author: Steven Earle.

Canada produced some 60 minerals and metals at almost mines and 6, sand, gravel and stone quarries The total value of Canada's mineral production reached $ billion in Gold was the top-ranked commodity by value of production in Canada in with a value of $ billion.

Far behind it, other major countries are Russia, the United States, and Canada. The United States is estimated to have platinum metal reserves of some metric tons. Platinum. Palladium is found as a free metal and alloyed with platinum and gold with platinum group metals in placer deposits of the Ural Mountains of Eurasia, Australia, Ethiopia, South and North America.

Bedrock and beach sand deposits constitute the locations of the largest mines. REE-rich minerals are generally found in either carbonatites or peralkaline granites and associated pegmatites. Platinum group metals in North America are primarily mined in Canada and Montana.

Much of the Platinum in North America is a byproduct of nickel mining. Mining took place in Canada as early as To date, there are very few Platinum-exclusive mines in North America. This speaks to the value of Platinum today.

Native Platinum is the most significant source of the element platinum, although considerable quantities are also mined from the rare platinum arsenide mineral Sperrylite.

The rare metals iridium, osmium, rhodium, and palladium are almost exclusively mined together with platinum in platinum deposits. Platinum has a number of industrial uses due. From Spanish "platina", diminutive of "plata", silver. The new metal found in large placer deposits during the sixteenth-century Spanish conquest of South America was called "platina del Pinto" after the Rio Pinto, Columbia.

Platinum and palladium trade control and hallmarking in the UK have been discussed in earlier issues of this journal (1–2).In Switzerland, manufacturers, smelters or sellers of silver, gold, platinum and palladium items are subject to the Precious Metals Control Act ().Every aspect related to precious metal is evoked in this Act: hallmarking, assaying or refining.

() Catalog of Canadian Minerals: Revised Platinum is a chemical element with the symbol Pt and atomic number It is a dense, malleable, ductile, highly unreactive, precious, silverish-white transition name is derived from the Spanish term platino, meaning "little silver".

Platinum is a member of the platinum group of elements and group 10 of the periodic table of has six naturally occurring ciation: /ˈplætɪnəm/ ​(PLAT-ə-nəm). Platinum can occur free in nature and is sometimes found in deposits of gold-bearing sands, primarily those found in the Ural mountains, Columbia and the western United States.

Platinum, in the form of the mineral sperrylite (PtAs 2), is also obtained as a byproduct of the nickel mining operation in the Sudbury region of Ontario, Canada.

Platinum gets its name from platina, meaning "little silver," because the Spaniards considered it an unwanted impurity in silver mining operations in the most part, PGMs are found together in ores. Ultramafic and mafic igneous rocks contain high levels of platinum group metals, the granites contain a low percentage of the metals.

Nickel Sulfide Ores and Impact Melts: Origin of the Sudbury Igneous Complex presents a current state of understanding on the geology and ore deposits of the Sudbury Igneous Complex in Ontario, Canada. As the first complete reference on the subject, this book explores the linkage between the processes of meteorite impact, melt sheet formation, differentiation, sulfide immiscibility and metal.

A recent discovery of palladium and platinum north of Timmins could mean a very bright future and a big boost to the electric vehicle industry. Base metal explorer Canada Nickel Company conducted a drilling program at its Crawford Project, approximately 40 kilometres north of Author: Andrew Autio.

The six platinum group metals (PGMs) occur together in nature alongside nickel and copper. Mineable deposits of PGMs are very rare, with annual production amounting to around tonnes, several orders of magnitude lower than many common metals.

Due to their economic values and higher quantities, platinum and palladium are the most important File Size: KB. Ore is natural rock or sediment that contains desirable minerals, typically metals, that can be extracted from it.

Ore is extracted from the earth through mining and refined, often via smelting, to extract the valuable element or elements. The grade of ore refers to the concentration of the desired material it contains. The value of the metal an ore contains must be weighed against the cost.

Metals in Canada include copper, lead, nickel, and zinc, and precious metals are gold, platinum and silver. Canada is the leading supplier of natural gas and phosphate and is the third largest Author: Craig Anthony.

Companies engaging in copper mining in Canada generally produce the metal in conjunction with another metal. Copper is most often mined as a co-product of nickel, zinc, lead, gold or molybdenum.

Bushveld Complex in South Africa and a few ore deposits have PGM deposits in large quantities just like platinum to exclusively extract these metals in economically. The ore deposits in Russia, Taimyr and Kola, including that of Canada’s Sudbury, extract palladium and other PGMs as by-product of nickel and copper.

Placer Platinum. Platinum in terms of rarity surpasses gold by almost 90% in annual production. A placer platinum nugget in hard metallic form (the majority of placer platinum is a sponge of platinum and chromite) is almost incalculable in rarity.

Crystalline form is the absolute rarest precious metal. With the exception of small alluvial deposits of platinum, palladium, and iridosmine (an alloy of iridium and osmium), virtually no ores exist in which the major metal is from the platinum group.

Platinum minerals are usually highly disseminated in sulfide ores, particularly the.
