Mina "Clara Natividad", Distrito Los Manantiales, Departamento Gastre, Chubut, Argentina.


Part of a low sulphidation polymetallic deposit since it also contains gold, lead, zinc, copper and silver, formed in the tertiary age. Since 1992 these mines remain closed due to lack of reserves.
Pyrite: along sphalerite, galena and chalcopyrite. Mentioned also the presence of auriferous pyrite there. It is currently closed due to lack of reserves.
In addition to adularia, there is galena, sphalerite, pyrite, chalcopyrite and chlorite. The adularia appears in two generations: the first composed of acicular crystals on the walls of the veins associated with quartz, pyrite and ripidolite - chlorite-, and the second for sulphides, as veins. It is the cement of the gap in sulphides in mine Clara Nativity.
