Summary:Bismuth tellurides (tetradymite, tellurobismuthite and buckhornite) are identified in salband mineralization at Sacarimb. Nagyagite is ubiquitously present, whereas other Au(Ag)-tellurides (sylvanite, petzite, hessite, stutzite) and native tellurium are only locally abundant. Tellurides are mainly hosted within Sb-As-sulphosalts, textures indicate co-precipitation of sulphosalts and tellurides. A second population of the same Au(Ag)-tellurides, but now also including Bi-tellurides, relates to fluids introduced during vein reopening. The observations indicate that tellurides account for much of the 1-2 g/t gold in the salband ore. [I.K.B.]
