MANGANO, MG y BUATOIS, LA. The lower Paleozoic in the Sierra del Campo, province of Tucumán: New data on the southern extension of the Eopaleozoic basin in northwestern Argentina. Rev. Asoc. Geol. Argent. [online]. 2003, vol.58, n.4, pp. 623-628. ISSN 0004-4822.
Study of Lower Paleozoic outcrops from the Sierra del Campo, Tucumán province, provides information on the southern margin of the Early Paleozoic basin of northwest Argentina. Facies analysis indicates that these deposits record sedimentation in a subtidal sandbar complex of a tide-dominated shallow sea. Comparison with other outcrops in the basin suggests a regional correlation with the Mesón Group.
