Summary

Much of the sulfide ores in the Cracow-Silesian district occurs in flat-lying breccia zones which are interpreted as underground manifestations of hydrothermal karst processes. It is assumed that the breccias represent solution-collapse structures produced by hot mineralizing solutions concomittantly with deposition of the ores.
