Sedimentary-metamorphic hydrothermally transformed tin deposit, hosted in Lower Jurassic shales and sandstones overlying a monzonitic granite. Tin occurs as colloidal to cryptocristalline cassiterite, either disseminated in phyllitic shales or cementing sandstone nodules that contain lead, zinc and silver, and as crystalline cassiterite together with sulfides in quartz veins or as a filling along fissures.
