    • An Experimental Study on the Role of Te, Bi, and As in the Mobilization of Highly Siderophile Elements (HSE): Implications for the formation of the footwall deposits of the Sudbury Igneous Complex (Ontario, Canada) [Cafagna, F. and Jugo, P.J.] 

    • Experimental Study on the Solubility of Metalloids in Sulfides, the Exsolution of Immiscible Metalloid Liquids and the Formation of Discrete HSE-bearing Metalloid Phases between 1050 °C and 600 °C [Cafagna, F. and Jugo, P.J.]

    • Discrimination of different ore types using trace element distribution in major sulfides: a pilot study from the Levack-Morrison ore system, Sudbury, Ontario [Adibpour, M., Jugo, P.J., and Ames, D. E.]
