Very interesting. Add the nickel to all the sulfur and bingo, mass extinction. I would imagine with further study there will be signs that other nasty minerals were pumped out over the lifespan of these flood basalt events. One wonders if the same effect took place during the Deccan events, or those of the northwestern US. Thanks for sharing this!
