Abstract
Carboniferous sedimentary rocks in the southwestern Catalonian Coastal Ranges contain stratiform (Zn, Pb, Cu) sulfide deposits. Stable isotope compositions of sulfur, oxygen, and hydrogen were studied in five localities in order to establish the source of hydrothermal fluids and the influence of metamorphism on these deposits. Sulfur isotopes were analyzed in pyrrhotite, pyrite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, and galena. The d34S(CDT) values lie mostly between -1.0 and +7.0‰ (average +4.4‰). Exce...
