Summary:In the polymetallic hydrothermal Miedzianka ore deposit the weathering process begins with the decomposition of galena and Cu sulphides. The succession is: digenite, covellite, cerussite I, goethite, cerussite II, U minerals, quartz I, crysocolla, calcite, malachite, azurite, pyromorphite, wulfenite, quartz II and Fe ochres. The pyromorphite has an untypical, dark green colour; a9.983, c 7.348 Angstrom; the lack of indisputable OH bands in its IR absorption spectrum suggest the possibility of substitution at the X2+ cationic sites.
