Skarn-type Au-(Fe-Cu) deposit, hosted in Neoproterozoic marble, meta-tonalite, and meta-syenogranite.

The Itajubatiba deposit is situated 35 km southwest of the town of Patos in the Paraíba state, northeastern Brazil. It was discovered in the 1940s and was mined over a thirty-year period, with a total production of approximately 5 tonnes of gold. The ore grade ranged from 0.5 to 2.0 ppm and the highest grade reached 6.3 ppm (Rebouças, 1985).

Gold occurs either disseminated within the calc-silicate gangue of the skarns or in quartz veins.
