The paper summarizes the data on the fndings of delafossite in oxidation zones of the Urals ore deposits: Mednorudyanskoe, Uchaly, xIx parts′yezda, Gay, and Bakr-Uzyak. The morphology, mineral assemblages, and chemical composition of delafossite are presented. It is shown that this mineral is much more abundant that it was considered before.
