Characterization and Reconstruction of Multiple Copper-Bearing Hydrothermal Systems in the Tea Cup Porphyry System , Pinal County , Arizona

  title={Characterization and Reconstruction of Multiple Copper-Bearing Hydrothermal Systems in the Tea Cup Porphyry System , Pinal County , Arizona},
  author={PHILLIP A. NICKERSON and Mark D. Barton},
This study exploits a cross-sectional view of the Laramide magmatic arc in the northern Tortilla Mountains, central Arizona, that was created by tilting during severe Tertiary extension of the Basin and Range province. Building upon earlier work, we combine the results of geologic mapping of rock types, structures, and hydrothermal alteration styles, with a palinspastic reconstruction, to provide a system-wide understanding of the evolution of the composite magmatic and hydrothermal Tea Cup… CONTINUE READING
