    It's available in little tiny veins here and there due to asteroid impacts.  Asteroids are the source, and even a single small one has the potential to provide more platinum group metals than have ever been mined in all of human history put together.  As for "magically detecting" them, I don't know why you have this attitude toward science and technology, but ignorance is not a substitute for competence in a high-tech field.  They know how to do it, period.  I know how to do it with a couple of years of undergraduate physics.  The expense is virtually all in the launch.
