It is not possible to attribute all lead-zinc deposits of the Alps to a single origin. An assemblage of observations and facts gathered during twenty years leads the author to believe that the deposits situated in the Anisian are tied to the Triassic magmatic activity and those of the Ladinian Upper Raiblian basically to the Tertiary magmatism with an early, subordinate Triassic phase that was sedimentary-exhalative. The Triassic and Tertiary magmatisms are considered to be manifestations of a single grand pluton situated along the crest of the Alpine chain as proposed in 1948.
