Stannite, freibergite and cassiterite were found for the first time in the gold-quartz vein from the Nikolaevskoe deposit, South Yenisei ore region, Krasnoyarsk krai, Russia. Te-canfieldite was described for the first time in Russia. Stannite and Te-canfieldite are characterized by the presence of Zn: 2.8–3.5 and 0.5–0.8 wt. %, respectively. The presence of these minerals is a specific feature of Nikolaevskoe deposit in comparison with other gold-quartz-sulfide deposits of the South Yenisei ore region.
