Platinum group elements: indicators of sulfide saturation in intermediate to felsic magmatic systems and implications for porphyry deposit formation

Cocker, Helen Amy


Sulfide saturation during the magmatic evolution of porphyry systems is emerging as an important control on the fertility of magmas with respect to the chalcophile elements. Platinum group elements (PGE) have extreme sulfide melt-silicate melt partition coefficients that make them sensitive indicators of the timing of sulfide saturation in evolving magmatic systems. This study reports PGE and Re concentrations, measured using a NiS fire assay isotope dilution...[Show more]
