Resumen

VALDES-MARINO, Yurisley et al. Petrologic-geochemical characterization of ultramafic association in Camarioca Sur area of Moa-Baracoa ophiolite complex. Min. Geol. [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.4, pp.384-399. ISSN 1993-8012.

Camarioca Sur is a sector in Moa-Baracoa ophiolitic complex composed of pyroxene ultramaphites, gneissic amphiboles, chromium-spinels and amphibolitic granofels, in which the presence of compact and hard rock dykes has been documented, white to dark gray color and poor weathering crust development. The aim of this research is to characterize the associated leucocratic dykes and the ultramafic lithological association of Moa-Baracoa ophiolitic complex in Camarioca Sur sector by using petrological and geochemical techniques. It was found harzburgite dunites are the predominant rocks. Peridotites are mainly composed of olivine, with the presence of chromium-spinels and to lesser extent pyroxenes. The rocks are partial or totally transformed into minerals of serpentine group (antigorite, lizardite and chrysotile). Some peridotites are metamorphosed, developing talcum + tremolite + chlorite. The leucocratic rocks, which cut through the peridotite dikes, consist mainly of plagioclase (oligoclase-andesine), quartz and actinolite, and apatite, Muscovite and rutile as accessories. These dikes show a slight metamorphism, developing a foliation and the formation of albite + clinozoisite + kaolinite, which denotes conditions of metamorphism of degree from low to medium.

Palabras clave : Moa-Baracoa ophiolitic association; Camarioca Sur; antigorite; harzburgite; dunites; leucocratic rocks.
