With this research it is expected to be able to identify and map the spatial distribution of surface mineralogy, which will be indicative for the underlying geology. This map will also be indicative of the processes in the hydrothermal areas, as is the interpretation of the distribution of pressure and temperature of the system, the geochemistry, how the faults played a role in determining the hydrothermal processes, the classification in time of this faults (pre-, syn-, post-events), differentiation between the two main alteration zones (Los Tollos and Cerro del Cinto). The specific objectives include the interpretation of alteration zones, the production of a hydrothermal map, the production of sub-maps, the creation of a spectral library of local rock-samples, the production of cross-sections and the quality assessment of the hydrothermal map obtained.
