Description:
Abstract:
The data in Ni_Cr_PGE shapefile was obtained by compiling records of sites containing nickel, chromium, or one of the platinum group elements from published databases and one in-house database. A basic set of data: name, latitude, longitude, commodities, record type, and reference were added to a database.
Purpose:
The dataset was created to provide an index to other sources of information on mineral sites containing nickel, chromium and platinum group elements.
