By rule of law number 19059 the nation ordered the three areas for mining research reserve in the province of Tucumán, completing similar provisions, whose essential purpose, for the moment, the assessment of the possibilities of mining economic performance. The three areas on which had jurisdiction the Under-Secretary of mining of the nation until 31 December 1974 were the so-called:
a)- "Aconquija", in the Chicligasta Department,
b)- "Cerro Quico" in La Cocha Department,
c)- "Chavarría" in Juan Bautista Alberdi Department.
The corresponding technical report pointed out that the first of these areas presents vein of Lead and Zinc and important areas of hydrothermal alteration, with possibilities of Copper spread in rocks.
