This suggests barite precipitation by mixing of two endmember fluids at varying ratios during barite formation: warm (up to 70 [degrees]C) reducing fluid bearing Ba, characterized by an elevated radiogenic Sr- and [.
Such covariation suggests a mixing of two endmember fluids at varying ratios--one being a more evolved fluid with elevated Sr isotope ratios and isotopically heavy sulphate, possibly derived from reworked porewater, and the other being a fluid bearing isotopically light sulphate and less radiogenic Sr isotope signature, possibly representing the original porewater (Maynard et al.
