  author={V{\'i}ctor Alberto Ramos and Milka K. de Brodtkorb},
The main celestite and barite metallotects of the Andes are presently known in the Neuquen basin, developed along the retroarc side of the Andean Chain (Fig. 1). The purpose of this chapter is to summarize the geologic and tectonic controls that encompass the stratabound celestite and barite deposits in this large area. The geologic framework will be briefly described in order to understand the precise setting of the metallotects analyzed, as well as the main characteristics of the more… CONTINUE READING
