Metallogenic Evolution of the Yauli Dome, Central Peru

A Summary
  • H. W. Kobe
Part of the Special Publication No. 8 of the Society for Geology Applied to Mineral Deposits book series (MINERAL DEPOS., volume 8)


Among the Paleozoic inliers in the Mesozoic fold belt to the W of the coherent Paleozoic in central Peru, the Yauli Dome is distinguished particularly for its abundance of mineral deposits. In addition, due to its economic importance and its favorable accessibility, it is the best studied among the comparable areas of Cerro de Pasco, Chulpán, Malpaso, Yauli, and Lircay (Fig. 1).
