Large Cu-Zn-Pb-Ag mine with ore of metamorphosed SEDEX-VMS type.
Mining started in 1857 and is still continuing. A large Cu-ore was discovered (~10 years ago) and estimated to hold 2.9Mt @ 2.6% Cu, 0.3% Zn, 30 g/t Ag. The mine was owned and operated by Vieille Montagne until North Ltd bought it in 1995. Currently owned by Lundin Mining.

Zinkgruvan is one of the oldest redox-controlled syngenetic Zn-Pb-Ag and Cu deposits.

NOTE: Zinkgruvan is both the name of the village and the mine that is central in the area. The placename Åmmeberg which occurs in several publications is the neighboring village from where the ore was shipped. The Zinkgruvan mines were earlier called the Åmmeberg mines.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Orosirian : 1924 Ma to 1865 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
