I don't know exactly how you want to model this reaction. Below is an input file that takes pure water, equilibrates with arsenopyrite, and then adds a quantity of FeCl3 and re-equilibrates with arsenopyrite. I used llnl.dat because it had the arsenopyrite phase in the database; however, you can make the same calculation with wateq4f.dat if you define arsenopyrite in a PHASES data block in the input file. The calculation assumes redox equilibrium for iron.

Thanks in for your attention Ricardo Perobelli Borba Instituto de Geociências - Unicamp Brazil
