Liquidus data on the system FeS-FeO-SiO 2 is used to derive approximate relationships for the liquidus of the system pyrrhotite-magnetite-gabbroic silicates. Separation of a metallic sulfide liquid from the residual silicate liquid during crystallization of silicates is possible if the oxidation potential of the magma is below some critical value.
