    • ...Concentrations of Mn and Fe lie below the background levels of SQUIRTs and are not discussed here because these metals are mainly derived from weathering of heavy minerals present everywhere in the region as iron ores (magnetite, amphiboles, pyroxenes, and biotites; Teruggi 1957; Grecco et al. 2006)...
    • ...This can be attributed to the weathering of local sediments originating from the Andean volcanic rocks, which are mainly basaltic to andesitic in composition (Teruggi 1957)...
