Locality type:


A lead-zinc mine owned by Société Minière et Métallurgique de Penarroya.

One of the most significant Pb-Zn Sr-Ba deposits of the flysch zone in northern Tunisia.

Geological, mineralogical and thermometric data indicate that the Ain Allega ore deposit results of a mixing of basinal fluids (Mississippi valley type deposit) and hydrothermal fluids related to a shallow intrusion.
