Abstract
The Lower Llandoverian metasedimentary rocks of the Prades Mountains, southwestern Catalonia, Spain, consist of interstratified anorthite-rich beds, chert beds, phosphate beds, sulfide-rich black shale (with mainly pyrrhotite and minor chalcopyrite), massive sulfide lenses and calc-silicate beds. These metasedimentary rocks are anomalously enriched in V and Cr, and have disseminated minerals of precious metals: mainly sperrylite and palladian lo¨llingite. The V- and Cr-rich associations are the...
