Abstract
The El Cobre deposit, east of Cuba, lies in the intermediate volcanosedimentary sequence of the Sierra Maestra intraoceanic island arc. The structure of the deposit corresponds to that of a volcanogenic-hosted massive sulfide (VHMS) model. It comprises (a) thick stratiform bodies (baryte and anhydrite), (b) three stratabound bodies (formed by silicification and sulfidation of limestones or sulfate strata), (c) stockwork zones, an older anhydrite stockwork and a younger quartz-pyrite stockwork gr...
