Two groups of unnamed palladium tellurides are present in several deposits near Broken Hill, New South Wales. The first corresponds to bismuthian Pd8Te3. A mercurian analogue has also been found at Mulga Springs. The second corresponds to bismuthian P20Te7. Both phases are known synthetically, but have not yet been described as valid species. Their relation to similar phases is discussed and the appropriate portion of the Pd-Te-Bi phase diagram reinterpreted in the light of naturally occurring species and recent synthetic studies.
