Goldfinger Posted August 10, 2007 Share Posted August 10, 2007 Hi Guys: Any reason we never see precious metals in meteorites? I've seen some of these documentries or read articles where they talk about mining asteroids in the future for gold, silver, copper and many other metals. Meteorites are just small chunks that came from large asteroids yet you only see a few basic elements in their composition. Where are all these other elements and why aren't they found in meteorites? We've been finding meteorites for decades but we have yet to find one with an unusual composition. Do asteroids or meteorites with unusual elements even exist??? :hmmmmmm: Steve Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
