Mined Sn-Pb-Zn-As in two types of deposit: pyrometasomatic (skarn) and hydrothermal veins, both related to a Tertiary granitic intrusion into Paleozoic sedimentary rock. Arsenic contamination of surroundings is a problem. (Localities labelled "Iwato mine", "Noborio" or "Yamaura" are from the Toroku mine or its surrounding country rock.)
