Thermodynamic properties of tetrahedrite-tennantites; constraints on the interdependence of the Ag <--> Cu, Fe <--> Zn, Cu <--> Fe, and As <--> Sb exchange reactions

Abstract

The results of Fe-Zn-Cu exchange experiments between sphalerites and tetrahedrite-tennanite in portions of the Cu-Fe-Zn-Sb-S, Cu-Fe-Zn-As-S and Cu-Fe-Zn-Sb-As-S systems at 500 degrees C, together with studies of natural tetrahedrite-tennantite-bearing assemblages and preliminary results of similar exchange experiments at 365 and 435 degrees C, provide a basis for developing a provisional calibration for the thermodynamic mixing properties of (Ag,Cu) (sub 6) (Cu (sub 2/3) (Fe,Zn) (sub 1/3) ) (sub 6) (As,Sb) (sub 4) S (sub 13) tetrahedrite-tennantite.
