The vast majority of HEAs use d-block transition elements and rarely feature elements from certain groups, such as precious metals. A modelling technique was developed for finding HEAs with unusual compositions chosen from a wider variety of elements. The technique uses a program that can rapidly scan across large numbers of compositions and alloy systems. Filtering through the results, using both simple and complex selection criteria, compositions could be selected that had a high probability of forming a HEA. By way of an example the program was used to find novel HEAs containing silver. It was shown that even small quantities silver of silver added to existing HEAs corrupted the structure, but using the screening technique silver HEAs were found with high concentrations.
