    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Vein mineralization hosted by NW-trending joints at Tombuie near Loch Tay, Central Grampians contains base metal sulphides with Au, Bi, Ag and Te bearing phases associated with relatively late stage galena-dominated mineralization. Minerals present include mercurian electrum, tetradymite, altaite, rucklidegeite, hessite and argentian tetrahedrite. The mineralization is similar to that at Calliachar-Urlar and other mineralized localities in the region that form a small metallogenic province partially defined by a Bi stream sediment anomaly. © 2010 Scottish Journal of Geology.
