Mineralogical and geochemical research was carried out on shaft slags, converter slags, suspension slags and copper matte from the Legnica-Glogow Copper Region. Silver appears as small metallic inclusions in metallic Cu, metallic Pb is found in both in copper matte as well as metallic and sulphide droplets in slags. Silver occurs also as solid solution in metallic Cu and as Pb-Ag alloys. The main gold carriers are metallic phases: silver, lead and copper. The main carriers of Pd and Pt is metallic silver and metallic copper.
