... sulfide mineralization at Naica provide the first direct observations of main-stage fluids in these deposits. The inclusions can be divided into three compositionally distinct groups: (A) liquid + vapor (119 degrees -379 degrees C homogenization temperatures), (B) liquid + vapor + halite (237 degrees...

... Abstract The main item of interest is the visit to the Naica mine, which is reached by travelling southwards along valley floors to Delicias, and then southwestward to the mining community. The deposits comprise a lead-zinc-silver assemblage and are well developed in numerous mantos and breccia...
