Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This data set depicts the spatial distribution and most significant geological attributes of the world's major nickel, copper, platinum group element and chromite ore deposits. The majority of these deposits are associated with mafic and/or ultramafic igneous rocks in the form of volcanics or intrusions. In some settings they originated as components of these igneous rocks, and were further concentrated in the products of deep chemical weathering (laterite), or crumbling and redistribution in the drainage system or along the sea shore as placers.
