Abstract

A striking feature of the Ag/(Ag + Cu) and Zn/(Zn + Fe) values of the Ag-rich Keno Hill suite of tetrahedrite-freibergite minerals is that the averages of all but the Calumet and Husky mines fall within approximately 10 degrees of the 300 degrees C isotherm, offering strong evidence for the correctness and utility of the thermodynamic database on which the isotherms are based [M.M. 64-923].
