Stratabound sulphide and skarn orebodies, mined for copper and gold. The massive sulphide ores occur between Late Devonian sandstones and Middle Carboniferous carbonate rocks, while the skarns were produced by intrusion of quartz diorite into Late Palaeozoic carbonates. Ore reserves are estimated at 95.45 million tons, with metal reserves of one million tons of copper.
