The low-temperature epigenetic and stratabound Pb-Zn-Cu-Ba-F-Sr–bearing ore deposits enclosed within sedimentary columns historically have been major sources of metals. Exploration companies still find these deposits to be a profitable exploration target due to their simple mineralogy as well as the large tonnage that can present, always considering the mineral districts as a whole.

In northeastern México, several nonmagmatic, low-temperature Pb-Zn-F-Ba deposits have been systematically considered as magmatic-related (skarns, high-temperature replacement deposits, epithermal deposits, etc.). Recently, these deposits have been restudied and placed within a scenario of deep fluid circulation of basinal brines through the Mesozoic sedimentary series, enriched in Ba,...
