Localities

There are two co-type localities, the Stillwater Mine and the Stillwater complex, both in Stillwater county, Montana, USA. At the Stillwater complex, a single intergrowth of telluropalladinite with keithconnite and magnetite was found, together with seven free grains of telluropalladinite in the concentrates. the grains range in cross-section from 27x27 to 55x100 microns (CM 17.589-594). Associated minerals include keithconnite, magnetite, kotulskite, merenskyite, moncheite, braggite and vysotskite (HOM).
