Summary: Determinations of Cu in separate phases of three olivine-hypersthene and one olivine-bronzite chondrites show that it is very strongly concentrated in the taenite; appreciable amounts are present in the olivine, less in the pyroxene plus plagioclase; it is probable that the copper found in the ‘unattracted, attacked’ fraction is present as metallic copper, and that very little is present in the sulphides.
