Dangers are numerous and include the two British raiders, Ed Dunlop's TESTOSTERONE, a Group 2 winner in France as a three-year-old, and the Ralph Beckett-trained CUBANITE
These include acicular cubanite
crystals a few millimeters long, similar in appearance to millerite, and crude, embedded crystals of native platinum to 8 mm.
The vehicle is available in Carneol Red, Obsidian Black, Calcite White, Tenorite Grey, Iridium Silver and Cubanite
Silver paint is available as an exclusive finish, although any of the M-Class metallic paints can be chosen at no extra cost.
The geologic history of this deposit begins with the intrusion of stocks of tonalitic composition (the Andacollo porphyry, Upper Cretacous) within a layered sequence of andesite and dacites, which induced pervasive hydrothermal alteration (K silicate, quartz sericite) and mineralization (mainly pyrite-chalcopyrite plus some minor quantities of molybdenite, bornite, cubanite
Pyrite, pentlandite, monoclinic pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite are dominant in the lower zone of the Platreef, whereas pentlandite, hexagonal pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite ([+ or -] cubanite
) predominate in the upper zone (Gain and Mostert, 1982).
Some exceptional mineral specimens worth noting include a unique skeletal octahedral gold crystal from the Van Dyks mine; the finest pyrrhotite and cubanite
from southern Africa, collected at the Mponeng mine during 2002-2003; the largest barite crystals in the world, found at the Elandsrand gold mine; and a host of outstanding quartz specimens from several of the Witwatersrand mines.
Associated minerals are: chalcopyrite, a chalcopyrite-like sulphide (e.g., mooihoekite, talnakhite or putoranite), pentlandite, pyrrhotite, cubanite
, galena, talmyrite, cabriite, stannopalladinite, atokite-rustenburgite, paolovite, froodite, sperrylite, maslovite, Ag-Au alloy, Fe-rich hydrous silicate, magnetite and calcite.
is a rare accessory mineral associated with other sulfides at the First Sovietskiy and Nikolaevskiy mines.
