One of the most valuable minerals of which the source of supply is very little known, and is consequently very' limited, is that of platinum. In December, 1901, a discovery was made of a platinum group of metal: in the copper ores of the Rambler mine in "Wyoming. The uses of thi? metal would be greatly increased it it could be found in sufficient quan- tities' to reduce the present high price and to make a certainty of a suffici ent supply to warrant a further en largement of it as uses. For very many purposes there has as yet been found no other metal that will per fectly take its place. The conse quences Is that the price of platinum keeps up almost equal to that of gold, and the demand the last few years by the discovery of a use of osmium which occurs to considerable extent in American platinum as the mineral osmeridium. The present known de posits occur in three forms. First, in places, as exemplified by those in the Urals, Colombia, Brazil and British Columbia. Second, in veins, as at Tilkerode in the Hartz Mountains. Minas Gereas in Brazil, Santa Rose in California, Beresoosk in Russia Gauldual Canal of Spain and the Rambler mine, already mentioned. This third is by dissemination in eruptive rocks found in Canada, also as a native metal in basic eruptive rocks.
