A mathematical model for chalcopyrite disease within sphalerite is developed. As one main result, by analyzing the system enthalpy, correct expressions for the reaction terms in a system undergoing phase transitions are worked out. For the resulting equations, the thermodynamical validity is shown and the existence of a unique solution is proved.
