Jbel Aouam (Djebel Aouam, Jebel Awam)


Active lead-zinc-silver deposit. Located in the Atlas Mts., between Azrou and Khénifra.

Mineralized veins located within an elliptic zone of contact metamorphism (skarns) around three Stephanian granitic stocks. These granites intrude Upper Ordovician to Visean sedimentary formations.

Three types of veins (Post-Visean open faulting) mineralizations are known:

(i) W-mineralization (290-280Ma), with two stages: 1st stage with scheelite, löllingite, gold, wolframite, biotite, apatite, alkaline feldspars, quartz (2 generations : one with scheelite-wolframite, one with scheelite-molybdenite), calcite, muscovite, chlorite and molybdenite; 2nd stage with scheelite, quartz, muscovite, chlorite, calcite, arsenopyrite, pyrrhotite, pyrite and chalcopyrite.

(ii) Pb/Zn-mineralization (circa 255+/-15Ma): with 4 major parageneses, the first with barren siderite, then siderite and quartz, galena, then ankerite-galena-sphalerite; the latter with calcite, chalcedony, baryte, galena, sphalerite and pyrite
Five veins are currently being exploited: Signal vein, Ighrem Aousser vein, Sidi Ahmed vein, Iguer Oujna vein, Parallele vein.

(iii) Sb-mineralization: independant from the first two ones, characterized by intense development of breccias; with stibnite, quartz, pyrite, chalcopyrite and baryte.
