The general characteristics of the volcnic rocks from "Zletovo" deposit and its vicinity are that they are tectonically altered, strongly hydrothermally alterized and mineralized.
Lead and zinc mineralization is mainly located along fault structures within the ignimbritic complex with dacitie composition. Volcanic rocks mainly fomled during oligo-miocene, but the lead-zinc mineralization, which is the product of the hydrothermal activity, formed during miocene.
Mineralization in Zletovo deposit was accompanied by intensive alternations of volcanic rocks, with explicit manifetations round the ore veins.
The investigations that we bave made so far have proved that in this deposit propylitization was the most extensive alternation in the volcanic rocks, the results of which are secn in the occurrance of chlorite, epidote, calcite, py rite etc.
During the hydrothermal activity the propylitized volcanic rocks were intensively hydrothermally altered so that only contours of previous minerals are left behind.
