Platinum mining in Canada began after the metal was discovered in Ontario in among nickel–copper ores. It can usually be found alongside other platinum-group metals (PGMs). This reference book is a must for students, research scholars, teachers, and professional explorers in economic geology, geography, and allied subjects.

Palladium is found as a free metal and alloyed with platinum and gold with platinum group metals in placer deposits of the Ural Mountains of Eurasia, Australia, Ethiopia, South and North America. However it is commercially produced from nickel- copper deposits found in South Africa and Ontario, Canada. Platinum-Nickel-Chromium Deposits: Geology, Exploration, and Reserve Base is the first reference book to combine information on the discovery of numerous minerals within existing deposits.

This book describes the history of platinum and its associated metals, covering important discoveries and scientific work on the platinum group metals up to the early twentieth century. With twenty-four chapters, pages, over references and illustrations (20 in colour) including portraits, “A History of Platinum and its Allied Metals” by Donald McDonald and Leslie B. Hunt is. Comprehensive list of Platinum Group Metal companies listed in Canada, including company profiles, charts, stock quotes, news and user commentary. Platinum Group Metal Mining Companies Listed in . In Canada in , platinum was discovered in the nickel-copper ores of Ontario. Between the end of the First World War and the s, Canada was the world's major source of supply. In a farmer in the Transvaal province of South Africa discovered several nuggets of platinum in a riverbed. Following this up, the geologist Hans Merensky discovered two deposits each of around kilometres.

Platinum group metals are used as alloying additives. PGMs may be used to make crucibles used to grow single crystals, particularly of oxides. Platinum group metal alloys are used to make electrical contacts, electrodes, thermocouples, and circuits. Iridium and platinum are . Platinum and Allied Metals in California Bulletin No [C. A. Logan] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Placer Platinum. Platinum in terms of rarity surpasses gold by almost 90% in annual production. A placer platinum nugget in hard metallic form (the majority of placer platinum is a sponge of platinum and chromite) is almost incalculable in rarity. Crystalline form is the absolute rarest precious metal on Earth.   HermanH wrote: ↑ When I called Amex customer service and asked last month they told me that they are watching the metal card launch in the U.S. and may adopt it in Canada after a period of time "we test products in the U.S. first". More likely they can't make the metal cards fast enough for domestic U.S. demand, and are concerning themselves with that first.
