Mainly a copper mine, with minor Ag, Au, Sn and W mineralization too, although no discrete Au-Ag minerals are visible. (1958 production: 2,856 tons Cu, 6 tons Ag; ore averaging 1.1% Cu.) Miocene hydrothermal chalcopyrite-pyrite veins traverse sedimentary rocks intruded by quartz porphyry dikes of the Kumano acidic intrusives.
13 valid minerals.
