Name(s) in local language(s): Miniera di Zorzone (Miniera di Gorno), Val Vedra, Oltre il Colle, Val Brembana, Bergamo, Lombardia, Italia
 
Alpine-type Zn-Pb-Ag deposit (similar to Mississippi Valley type deposits), broadly stratabound with some discordant mineralisation composed of brecchia bodies and veining. The deposit has a generally simple mineralogy with low-iron sphalerite, galena and pyrite.

Mineralisation is similar to that of the Paglio Pignolino Mine.

Warning: the mine has resumed activity ("Gorno Zinc Project"), work is under way for the safety of the tunnels, access to the area is forbidden!
