How chalcophile is rhenium? An experimental study of the solubility of Re in sulphide mattes

Da Fonseca, Raul; Mallmann, Guilherme; O'Neill, Hugh; Campbell, Ian


Although the Re/Os isotopic system has proved to be a valuable aid in understanding the evolution of the Earth's mantle, interpretation of the data is currently hindered by limited knowledge of the high-temperature geochemical behaviour of Re. In particular, the extent to which Re in the mantle is hosted by sulphide or silicate phases is poorly known. We report the results of an experimental study of the solubility of Re in sulphide melts (called here "mattes") coexisting with a Re-rich Re-Fe...[Show more]
