the more limited weathering present in the Rosh Pinah area. A batch of 20 smithsonite and calcite samples from the Skorpion deposit and 10 gossanous samples from the uppermost levels of the Rosh Pinah mine have been analysed. δC and δO isotopes of carbonates have been measured in permil (‰) versus V-PDB and VSMOW standards, respectively. The samples from Skorpion occur mostly as cavity fillings and crusts, which consist of mm-sized euhedral crystals. Smithsonite is characterised here by δC… Expand
