Consolidating platinum

References to gray, dense pebbles associated with alluvial gold deposits were made by Jesuits in the 16th century.

There are companies that will consolidate your debt for you and set up a repayment plan.

If you feel overwhelmed and insecure about this process, you may want to hire one of these companies to help you get through it.

Because these techniques were not available until the turn of the 19th century, the identification and isolation of the platinum group lagged behind silver and gold by thousands of years.

In addition, the high melting points of these metals limited their applications until researchers in Britain, France, Germany, and Russia devised methods for consolidating and working platinum into useful forms.

With the exception of small alluvial deposits of platinum, palladium, and iridosmine (an alloy of iridium and osmium), virtually no ores exist in which the major metal is from the platinum group.

Platinum minerals are usually highly disseminated in sulfide ores, particularly the nickel mineral pentlandite [(Ni, Fe)9S8].

You can make the best consolidation plan in the world, but it will still do you no good in the end if you do not change your behavior of accumulating debt.

By consolidating, you may be exposing yourself to additional risk, especially if you choose to borrow against your house.

One common way to do this is to get a home equity loan, which allows you to borrow against your house at a lower interest rate. This is ideal if you are not able to qualify for a 0% APR credit card and do not own a house or do not want to borrow against it.

It is key to live on a budget and keep your debt burden low so you can effectively pay off your newly-consolidated debt — and then stay out of debt.
