A Miocene diatreme-dome complex is associated with several large epithermal polymetallic (Cu-Zn-Pb-Au-Ag) ore deposits of the Cordilleran class. A continuously mineralized north-south corridor that extends for nearly 4 km outward from the diatreme-dome complex and to depths of 1 km below surface, is zoned from Cu-(Au) ores in its inner parts (Smelter deposit) to peripheral Zn-Pb-(Ag) ores (Colquijirca deposit).
