Abstract
The Central Andean tin belt is a metallogenic province, well-known by Sn, Ag, Pb, Zn, and W. However, in the Bolivian sector there is potential for strategic elements, mainly Indium, but still uncertain. In the present study, we characterized several deposits from the Poopó, Oruro, and Santa Fe mine districts. This work is focused in determining the mineralogy and metal richness in these deposits to evaluate their real extractive potential. Electron microprobe analysis were performed in order t...
