The Ore of Lead is called Galena [PbS] and the Ore of Zinc is called Sphalerite [(Zn,Fe)S]. The Lead-Zinc Ore is very abundant on earth. Nigeria it can be found in Cross-River, Ebonyi, FCT Abuja, Plateau and Zamfara. It is often associated with barite mineralization and thought to be of hydrothermal origin.
