Skarn-related mineralization where Ordovician sediments of the Acoyte Formation have been intruded by a Cretaceous granitic stock. Previously worked by the bolivian company COMSUR, now owned by Sinchi Wayra.
Elevation: 4036 meters above sea level. Exploitated for lead, zinc and silver since 1925, it was the first mine in Argentina to employ flotation techniques for ore concentration.
At the site of Aguilar, rhodonite form concentrations by way of eyes of up to half a metre in diameter; It is hosted in limestones and associated with tremolite-actinolite, calcite and bustamite, Garnet. Occurs in spar masses of pink to red. It was determined by chemical properties, crystallography and optical properties. Chemical Analysis is presented.
Bustamite: At the site of Aguilar, is presented in spar masses and as sometimes radiate fibrous aggregates of individuals of 3 cm of brown to pink. It is hosted in limestones and associated with rhodonite, tremolite-actinolite, calcite, and Garnet. It is characterized by chemical analysis by wet, crystallography and optical properties.
