Magmatic sulfide deposits. Geology, geochemistry and exploration / Магматические сульфидные месторождения. Геология, геохимия и разработка

Magmatic Nickel-Copper-Platinum-group element sulfide deposits form as the result of the segregation and concentration of droplets of liquid sulfide from mafic or ultramafic magma, and the partitioning of chalcophile elements into these from the silicate magma.

The size of the deposits, their grades and ratios of economic metals are very variable. This is illustrated in Table 1.1, which summarizes data on tonnes ofresources + production, grades ofNi, Cu, Co and PGE, tonnes of contained metal, and value of the ore and of the individual metals. It is also illustrated in Fig. 1.1, which shows the percentages that Ni+Co, Cu and the PGE contribute to the value of many magmatic sulfide deposits/camps. <...>
