All of the open spaces in this quartz breccia are lined with dark green botryoidal malachite. This is a HUGE copper-molybdenum mine in the Highland Valley of British Columbia that was formed by the amalgamation of Valley Copper Mine, Highmont Mine and Lornex Mine. When they mine the near surface portions of the deposit, they sometimes encounter secondary mineralization.
