Copper
Note. Boleo is spelled with no accented characters. The name variants Boléo and Boleó are frequently seen in print references but Mexican references spell the name simply as Boleo, so that is the variant used on Mindat. (The origin of the pseudo-spanish spelling "Boléo", often seen on english labels, was apparently a spanish orthographical error by the French mining company here, although the spanish language has strict rules about the use and non-use of accent marks and in this case it should be not accented.)
