2001: High-grade metamorphism and hydrous melting of metapelites in the Pinos terrane (W Cuba): Evidence for crustal thickening and extension in the northern Caribbean collisional belt

High-grade metamorphism and hydrous melting of metapelites in the Pinos terrane (W Cuba): Evidence for crustal thickening and extension in the northern Caribbean collisional belt Abstract The Pinos terrane (Isle of Pines, W Cuba) is a coherent metamorphic complex that probably represents a portion of the continental margin of the Yucatan Block during the Mesozoic.…

2001: Genesis of sulfide-rich chromite ores by the interaction between chromitite and pegmatitic olivine-norite dikes in the Potosí Mine (Moa-Baracoa ophiolitic massif, eastern Cuba)

Genesis of sulfide-rich chromite ores by the interaction between chromitite and pegmatitic olivine-norite dikes in the Potosí Mine (Moa-Baracoa ophiolitic massif, eastern Cuba) Abstract The Potosí Mine is located in the Moa-Baracoa massif in the easternmost part of the Cuban Ophiolitic Belt. Chromite mineralization occurs within the mantle–crust transition zone. Two events of magma intrusion…

1999: Uvarovite in podiform chromitites: the Moa-Baracoa ophiolitic massif, Cuba

Uvarovite in podiform chromitites: the Moa-Baracoa ophiolitic massif, Cuba Abstract The chromitite pods of the Moa-Baracoa massif, in the eastern ophiolitic belt of Cuba, contain pre-existing gabbro sills. This association is affected by two processes of hydrothermal alteration. The chromitites and the hosting dunites and harzburgites are affected first by regional serpentinization; a second alteration,…

2016: Mineralogy, geochemistry and sulfur isotope characterization of the Cerro de Maimón (Dominican Republic), San Fernando and Antonio (Cuba): Lower Cretaceous VMS deposits associated to the subduction initiation of the Proto-Caribbean lithosphere within a fore-arc

Abstract The volcanic-arc Lower Cretaceous Maimón (Dominican Republic) and Los Pasos (Cuba) Formations, representative of the oldest magmatism recorded in the Caribbean island arc, host most of the known volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits in the Greater Antilles. On the basis of new lithogeochemical data, basalts of the Maimón Formation are classified as fore arc…
