New publications from my research group (02/06/14)

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. The combination of fieldwork, teaching, and just being generally busy, hasn’t provided much time for extra-curricular writing. I’m taking a bit of a departure from previous posts, and just providing an … Continue reading

Noble Metals, Subcontinental Lithosphere, and Ni-Cu-PGE Deposits

Recent research by Kamenetsky et al. published in Geology provides insight into the nature of the parental magmas potentially responsible for the formation of nickel-copper-platinum group element (Ni-Cu-PGE) deposits in intra-plate environments. ┬áPrevious researchers have illustrated the importance of the … Continue reading

Classic papers in Economic Geology: Campbell and Naldrett (1979) – The Influence of Silicate-Sulfide Ratios on the Geochemistry of Magmatic Sulfides

Magmatic sulfide deposits are critical sources of nickel (Ni), copper (Cu), and platinum group elements (PGE) globally. ┬áThese deposits form from the segregation of a sulfide liquid from a silicate liquid, similar to oil separating from water, due to the … Continue reading
