“The metal-rich (MR) chondrites (>20 vol% of Fe,Ni-metal) have attracted a lot of attention recently. MR chondrites include Carbonaceous (C) chondrites (CHs, CBs [e.g., 1-4], CH/CBb chondrite Isheyevo , G chondrites (GC), Northwest Africa (NWA) 5492, and Grosvenor Mountains (GRO) 95551  and new ungrouped chondrites, Northwest Africa (NWA) 12379/12273 [7,8]. Here we discuss the main properties of a new grouplet of MR GCs and discuss possible origin of their components based on our comprehensive study of the Sierra Gorda (SG) 009
