RODRIGUEZ, María Eugenia; FERNANDEZ, Raúl R.; ECHAVARRIA, Leandro y DUCART, Diego F.. Hydrothermal alteration in San José mining district,Santa Cruz province. Rev. Asoc. Geol. Argent. [online]. 2010, vol.67, n.3, pp. 408-411. ISSN 0004-4822.
Hydrothermal clay mineral present at San José were characterized by field portable spectroscopy. Mineral assemblages indicate that hydrothermal fluid evolved throughout the district, from low pH-high temperature proximal to neutral-low temperature distal fluids. Compositional difference of illite depends of the fluid characteristics becoming more Na-rich at high temperature whereas in mineralizated areas are K-normal.
