Hydrothermal ore deposits are typically characterized in part by a description of the associated alteration minerals. One alteration type, termed "advanced argillic," occurs in relatively shallow geologic environments where sulfate-bearing and/or aluminosilicate minerals such as alunite, kaolinite, dickite, and pyrophyllite indicate formation by reactive fluids.
