Palladium deposit formation is often inferred from ancient rocks and lab results, but in a study by Marina Yudovskaya and others, actual content in hydrothermal fluids and gases was measured. It is encouraging to see contemporary transport being demonstrated; to bring to “life” the references to hypothetical emplacement that often guide our prospecting.
One of the applicants was “banging off pieces of rock for a closer look” with a claw hammer. Early geological reports dismissed the areas of interest, and only recently has extensive work by Duluth Metals and others proven the early exploration. A new court decision appears favorable to continued prospecting.
