Abstract
An intensive search of the literature provides the basis for the following conclusions concerning platinum and palladium. An average of 3.7 million troy ounces of platinum and palladium were produced in the world in the four-year 1969-1972 period. The United States consumed about a third of this. The proved world reserves amount to some 394 million troy ounces, with considerable promise of increasing these reserves through new explorations, half of the proved reserves are in the Republic of South Africa and 45% in the Soviet Union. No data exist by which an estimate can be made of transfer of platinum and palladium to the environment. Investigations show that only the salts of platinum present human health hazards. Industrial exposure to these is limited to the mining and refining of platinum ores and the preparation of catalysts for chemical and petroleum refining industries.
