2.1. Platinum-group element mineralogy

2. Literature review on platinum-group minerals 2.1. Platinum-group element mineralogy 2.1.1. Introduction The distribution of PGEs (platinum-group elements) in an ore is directly related to the type of ore, which in turn, dictates the mineralogical constitution. PGE ores can be divided into the following main classes (Stribrny et al., 2000):

Platinum. Platinum (element #78, symbol Pt) is a dense, silvery-gray metal. The platinum group of elements consists of metals with similar physical properties as platinum and these elements are among the rarest in the Earth’s crust. They have high melting points, are dense or heavy and are non-reactive with other elements.

What Are Platinum Group Metals (PGMs)? - ThoughtCo

Dec 10, 2018 · The platinum group metals (PGMs) are six transitional metal elements that are chemically, physically, and anatomically similar. The PGMs are the densest known metal elements. Exceptionally rare, the six metals naturally occur in the same ore bodies. They are highly durable and, due to their high value, often recycled, giving them long life cycles.
