Age of the Pueblo Viejo Gold-Silver Deposit and its significance to models for high-sulfidation epithermal mineralization

Kesler, Stephen E; Campbell, Ian; Smith, Christopher N; Hall, Chris M; Allen, Charlotte M


Isotopic analyses were undertaken to clarify age relationships between mineralization in the Pueblo Viejo high-sulfidation epithermal deposit and its host Los Ranchos Formation. This study is important to models for high-sulfidation epithermal deposits because the Los Ranchos Formation is a largely submarine, island-arc tholeiite sequence, very unlike the subaerial, calc-alkaline volcanic sequences that host most high-sulfidation epithermal deposits. Previous U-Pb analyses of zircons from the...[Show more]
