The British Geological Survey (BGS) has recently re-evaluated the potential for stratiform base-metal sulphide mineralisation in Devon and east Cornwall (Rollin et al., 2001) (Figure 1). On the basis of their stratigraphy and tectonic setting the Lower Carboniferous strata between, and to the north of, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor are favourable targets for Iberian Pyrite Belt (IPB)-type deposits (Figure 2). Similarly, the geological setting of the Middle to Upper Devonian sediments of Exmoor, north Devon, are comparable with those of the Harz basin in Germany which hosts the major polymetallic Sedex deposits at Rammelsburg and Meggen.
