Cobalt-rich mineralizations in lenses within calcite deposits along faults in Precambrian II serpentinized ultrabasic ophiolitic rocks.
Presence of cobaltoan garnierites, formed during an early low-T hydrothermal event, in tectonic cracks of the serpentinites.
The garnierites are cross-cut by arsenates (annabergite, haidingerite) veinlets with late filling of calcite and automorphous quartz and heterogenite.
