Controls on critical metals in magmatic and hydrothermal systems
Metals with high demand and a supply risk are called critical metals. One solution to the criticality problem is source diversification. We do not fully understand critical metal enrichment in ore deposits. I focus on two groups: the rare earth elements (REE) and the platinum group elements (PGE). At Nolans, NT, REE are hosted in fluorapatite veins up to several metres thick. I show experiments testing two formation hypotheses. First, I tested whether REE are hydrothermally mobile. I ran...[Show more]
