supporting databases, scanning electron microscope, and mineral chemistry /

"This Open file report releases accompanying databases of mineral chemical data, Scanning electron microscope feature analysis and identification of thousands of PGMs and accessory phases in the Marathon Cu-Pd deposit, Main and W Horizon zones, Area 41 mineralization and the Geordie Lake deposits in the Coldwell Alkaline Complex, Midcontinent rift. This mineralogical database release focussed on understanding the processes that control the trace elements that constitute platinum group, ore and accessory minerals to assess their relevance to issues of genesis, metallurgy or exploitation of resources"--Summary provided by publisher.
