... Abstract This paper discusses the possible genetic relationship between two ore deposits in the Nevados del Famatina mining district, Argentina: Nevados del Famatina Cu-Mo-Au porphyry deposit and La Mejicana Cu-Au high-sulfidation epithermal deposit. The porphyry system crops out in three open...
