Abstract
A new cartography of the veins and a detailed mineral sequence is provided for the Itos and San José mines, Oruro, Bolivia. The mineral sequence comprises an early stage with arsenopyrite, arsenian pyrite and cassiterite, followed by a stage with tin sulphosalts and Sn-rich sphalerite. In the latest stage, silver and lead sulphosalts formed along with galena, acanthite and sphalerite and minerals typical of advanced argillitic alteration (zunyite and minerals of the alunite supergroup). The occ...
