Common. In the upper levels of the mine, first oxidation zone.
- 1st Oxidation Zone
Linarite crystals to 20 mm occurred at outcrop.
Paragenetic and General Notes
In the upper parts of the first oxidation zone, including the outcrop, linarite commonly occurred in a matrix of granular cerussite, sometimes with brochantite, malachite and (less commonly) caledonite.
Linarite is commonly encountered as a partial coating on, or as near-surface inclusions in, cerussite crystals.
