The secondarily leached silver minerals miargyrite, iodargyrite and bromargyrite, were also encountered in the adits.
Minute (to 1.5 mm) yellow-green distorted octahedrons and cuboctahedrons of bromargyrite have been found on white micro-crystalline drusy quartz, cerussite and plattnerite in a localized area near the portal of the Brown Monster mine.
These include arseniosiderite, bromargyrite, cabalzarite, chalcophyllite, clinoclase, clinotyrolite, cobaltkoritnigite, cornubite, fornacite, geminite, litharge, mottramite, nickellotharmeyerite, novacekite, parnauite, powellite, uvarovite, walentaite, wulfenite, yukonite and zalesiite.
Taylor's (1824) translation of select passages from Alexander Humboldt's journeys to Mexico in 1800-1803 mentions Fresnillo as a region with mines that are "feebly wrought," and that the bill is traversed by an innumerable quantity of veins, rich in gray and green hornsilver (chlorargyrite and bromargyrite).
Like other late-stage silver-halides found at Rudabdnya, bromargyrite is derived from the alteration of tennantite found in the limonite and siliceous limonite of the Adolf mine section.
