Geología de un cuerpo cuarzoso en el área de la Estación Pablo Acosta, partido de Azul, basamento del Sistema de Tandilia

Enlace externo

Among the several outcrops of the mainly Palaeoproterozoic igneous-metamorphic basement of the Tandilia System exposed near the Estación Pablo Acosta, a quartz body, associated to a NE-SO shear zone, was identified. Field work, petrologic and geochemical studies revealed that it was formed from a siliceous fluid generated by metamorphic differentiation during the Transamazonian orogeny. On the other hand, the high degree of quartz purity together with the estimated outcropping volume points out a potential importance for industrial commercialization of the mineralization. In addition, this research provides valuable information to the geological-genetic model for the Tandilia System of the Buenos Aires Province.
