Geochemical exploration for chromitite-associated platinum deposits is hampered by a poor understanding of the distribution and behaviour of platinum in the surficial environment.  This study investigates platinum content, residence sites and mineralogy of soils developed on till and colluvium above the Tulameen Ultramafic Complex in southern British Columbia.
