Ore Deposits and Ore Genesis in the American Cordillera. Antoni Camprubi, UNAM, presiding. The American Cordillera or "backbone" constitutes one of the largest and most productive regions in the world. Despite the stunning genetic type variety and economic value or potential of ore deposits in the region, the long and complex geological history of the western Americas is yet to be unraveled.
