In general, CCUK-15 most closely resembles a metallic sulfide or sulphosalt in appearance.
In simplified form, the complex silver sulphosalt minerals are dissolved by hot ferric chloride solution.
Locally, associated sulphosalt minerals are: galenobismutite, cosalite, members of the bismuthinite-aikinite series (krupkaite-lindstromite range and gladite-hammarite range), argentian lillianite, Se-free junoite and members of the pavonite homolgous series.
Mineralisation consists of pyrite and arsenopyrite, sulphides of zinc and copper, antimonite, silver sulphosalts and native gold.
Accessory chalcopyrite, tennantite, arsenopyrite, silver, barite and lead sulphosalts also occur with the copper and barium phases tending to be most abundant in proximity to the Killoran and Derryville faults.
