corresponds to a variety with anincreased Zn content. Sulfosalts of the Ag(Pb)-Bi(Sb)-S systemThis group belongs to Ag-rich sulfosalts (pyrargyrite family) and ternary sulfosalts (freieslebenitefamily) (MOËLO et al. 2008). Within

according to ANTHONY et al. 1990.Besides so far determined sulfosalts, new mineralsfrom the Pb-Ag-Bi-Sb-S system could be discovered(RADOSAVLJEVIĆ 1988).Sulfosalts of the Pb-Sb(As)-S system,with ±Fe and ±CuThis sulfosalt group

EPMA of sulfosalts usually show presence of As (up to 8.00 wt%), Ag (up to0.04 wt%), Cu (up to 0.03 wt%) and Fe (up to 0.01wt%). Hg, Zn, Cd, Bi and Tl were not detected(RADOSAVLJEVIĆ 2012).Pb-Sb(As) sulfosalts, associated

1–3 Pb(Ag)-Bi sulfosalts; 4–7 Ag-Pb-Bi sulfosalts; bolded minerals have been confimed by X-ray diffraction (XRD). General formulae of the sulfosalts were calculated according to MOËLO et al. (2008).Sulfosalts of lillianite

Iron sulfides, arsenopyrite,chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena and sulfosalts are abundant minerals in the ore. Carrier minerals of Bi and Agare Bi-sulfosalts, such as galenobismutite, cosalite, Ag-bearing aschamalmite, vikingite

Sb or As substitution (Fig. 6). The complexity of sulfosalts within the ROF, originally reported by RAKIĆ (1958), has been confirmed by findingthese new rare sulfosalts. These are commonly disseminated in the massive sulfide
