Magmatic sulfide ore deposits are our most important source of platinum-group-elements, yet we currently have only a poor understanding of processes that drive ore genesis. This is because these metals are dominantly contained in minerals with As, Bi, Sb and/or Te, and almost no research has been conducted on how these elements behave within magmatic systems or how they control PGE distribution. This study will use experiments backed up by field-based research to solve these key problems, thereby revolutionising our understanding of PGE deposit genesis. This research will influence mining and mineral exploration strategies globally.
