Magmatic evolution of the southern Centinela district, northern Chile: insights from PGE geochemistry and zircon fertility tools

Carrasco Godoy, Carlos

Description

Copper is one of the most widely used metals in our society and it is essential for a broad range of applications. Globally, nearly three quarters of this metal is sourced from porphyry copper deposits. For this reason, is important to understand the processes that control their formation. Recent studies have shown that the platinum group elements (PGE) are sensitive indicators of sulphide saturation in evolving magma systems, which may be a key in controlling the fertility of Cu and Au in...[Show more]
