Sulfur isotope analyses of 10 epigenetic occurrences of pyrite in ocean-floor basalts yield an unexpectedly large range of áS values (from -24.2 to +23.O°/oo) for sulfides that are inferred to be of hydrothermal origin. The existing geologic, mineralogical, and isotopic data do not permit an unambiguous interpretation of the chemical and thermal characteristics of these hydrothermal systems. They fit either of two hypothetical models that assume isotopic equilibration between varying… CONTINUE READING
