We present an analysis leading to a new space-time classification of the Mexican epithermal deposits, based on new data and interpretations from seven deposits in central Mexico, and a new age for the La Guitarra deposit, Temascaltepec district. From the latter, adularia from a barren stage of mineralization and from quartz bands of the main ore stage, together with orthoclase phenocrysts from host monzogranites (with a known late Laramide age) were analyzed by the 40Ar/39Ar method. The ages… Expand
