The Quebrada de Los Colorados Formation (Middle Eocene) is the basal unit of the Payogastilla Group and consists of a 1500-m thick upward-thickening and upward-coarsening continental succession composed by siltstones, sandstones and conglomerates. This unit was deposited in fluvial and alluvial fan systems and constitutes the first filling of the foreland basin linked with the shortening and uplift of the Central Andes. We have carried out a mineralogical study of this unit, which comprises the analysis of more than 60 samples from Tin Tin, Cº Bayo and Saladillo sites by X- ray diffraction (XRD) from bulk sample and in the < 2 µm fraction with the aim to examine vertical and regional changes in clay mineralogy (Do Campo et al., 2008). During this study we identified I/S mixed layered minerals in several levels from the base of Saladillo site. At this site three irregularly distributed sedimentary sequences were identified by Hongn et al. (2007).
