Chemical and isotopic analysis of geothermal fluids were carried out at the Los Humeros, Mexico, geothermal field in order to establish the water-rock equilibrium state and to determine the origin of the acidity in the reservoir. From the perspective of water-rock equilibrium, the Los Humeros geothermal reservoir is out of equilibrium. Probably because it is associated with recent volcanism, which indicates that the magmatic components in the geothermal fluids are not neutralized by reaction with feldspar and mica.
