Argentina

Alkaline rocks in Argentina occur essentially in the west of the country in a zone parallel to the Andean chain, and associated with voluminous but predominantly calc-alkaline and tholeiitic volcanics. Few detailed petrological accounts of the alkaline rocks are available, but a general review has been given by Quartino and Llambias (1964).
