The importance of the generation of sulfide minerals as pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphaelerite and wurzite by the emanation centers in the East Pacific Rise at 21 N was analysed.

The similarities among the mineral sulfide from the East Pacific Rise and Chipre's ophiolitic sequence were compared.

Metallogenetic analogies are observed between oceanic spreading centers and continental areas with rift processes like the Transmexican Volcanic Belt.
