Term:PLATINUM GROUP METALS [PGM]

These are platinum itself and rhodium, palladium, iridium, osmium and ruthenium. Normally these metals are all found in the same deposits and so are mined together in varying proportions. For example, South African mines produce far less palladium and far more platinum than Russian mines.
