Limarinho, Bobadela, Boticas, Distrito de Vila Real, Portugal


Gold-bearing quartz arsenopyrite vein system hosted by a late Variscan S-type granite.

Located about 10 km W of Chaves, in the “Galicia-Trás-Os-Montes Zone” (GTMZ).
Part of the "Boticas gold property".

Note on the mineral list: unspecified "sulphosalts, mostly tellurides and bismuthides" are also mentioned by Cepedal et al. (2013).
