Abstract
Volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits are the most conspicuous type of deposits that formed during the Mesozoic in Mexico. Many Mexican VMS deposits display “classical” Kuroko-type mineral zonation and structure, and some of them, as Cuale and La Minita formed in shallow submarine environments. The most prospective time window for the formation of VMS deposits in Mexico comprises the Late Jurassic and the Early Cretaceous. VMS stopped forming during the progressive continentalization o...
