Abstract

Typical features of platinum group minerals (PGMs) and the results of 190Pt–4He dating of the Fe–Pt solid solutions are presented for complex gold–platinum–diamond placers with unidentified sources of the Anabar River basin. For the first time, the 190Pt–4He isotopic system is used for determination of the possible age of the primary source of a PGM placer from the example of ferroan platinum with a disordered structure along with isoferro- platinum. The PGMs of these placers mostly include ferroan platinum and isoferroplatinum and rare Ru–Ir–Os alloys. The calculated bulk composition of the silicate inclusion of Ir platinum corresponds to the rocks of the ijolite–melteigite series. The 190Pt–4He age of the Fe–Pt solid solution grains is 261 ± 13 Ma. Thus, our data indicate the relation between placer PGMs of the Anabar River basin and Permian-Triassic complexes of alkaline-ultramafic rocks.
