Helium isotopes have been measured in fluorite and sulphides from fluorite-rich Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) deposits from Asturias, Spain, in order to assess the involvement of mantle and crust-derived volatiles in the genesis of the deposits. The 3He/4He of the ore fluids are ≤0.1 Ra ruling out a contribution of mantle-derived magmatic helium in the inclusion fluids. Data support a crustal source for the volatiles and is consistent with the existing basinal model for the genesis of the Asturias MVT mineralization by mixing of sedimentary brines with infiltrating superficial fluids.
