Summary:Electrolyte concentrations in aqueous fluid inclusions in quartz from a high-T hydrothermal rock were measured for 15 elements by an improved crush-leach procedure. The primary hydrothermal fluid was dominated by NaCl and from previous studies was about 3 M with respect to Cl. On this basis, the molar concentrations include Fe 0.21, Mn 0.06 and Zn 0.02, and the fluid is interpreted as parental to some of the SW England orebodies. (Authors' abstract) [R.K.H.]
