01/02/2003· Antimony (Sb) occurs principally in stibnite (Sb2 S 3) in mesothermal vein deposits hosted in low-grade metamorphic belts of eastern Australia and southern New Zealand. Stibnite is commonly associated with gold. Many deposits have been mined historically, with one large deposit, at Hillgrove, New South Wales, being mined recently.Cited by: 213
