SHRIMP V-Pb Zircon Age of a Felsic Meta-tuff in the Ogcheon Metamorphic Belt, Korea: Neoproterozoic (ca. 750 Ma) Volcanism
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 13, issue 3, 2004, Pages 119~125
Using a SHRIMP ion microprobe, we have dated zircon grains of a felsic meta-tuff from the so-cal1ed Munjuri Formation, Ogcheon metamorphic belt. The weighted mean
U zircon ages obtained from 13 spot analyses of 10 grains provide an essentially concordant age of 747
7Ma. This result corroborates the conventional U-Pb zircon age (756
1Ma; Lee et al., 1998) for the Neoproterozoic bimodal volcanism in the Ogcheon belt. Thus, proto-basins associated with intracontinental, high-volcanicity rift in the Ogcheon belt are most likely to have formed at ca. 750 Ma.
Mineral Separation and Sample Preparation Methods Efficient for Subgrain Zircon Analyses
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 13, issue 3, 2004, Pages 126~132
This study provides detailed sample preparation methods for subgrain zircon analyses, and a simple mineral separation technique which overflows light mineral grains out of beaker using the running water from faucet. Excluding separation steps using of the Wilfley table and heavy liquid, this technique is faster and more efficient than conventional one, and remarkably suitable for collecting small amount of zircon for subgrain analyses.
Characteristics of the Rock Cleavage in Jurassic Granite, Pocheon
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 13, issue 3, 2004, Pages 133~141
We have studied the characteristics of rock cleavage for the Pocheon granite with Jurassic emplacement age. Photomicrographs were used to observe and analyze microcracks from the granite. Three sets of microcrack planes are recognized; (1) the rift plane developed parallel to the principal sets of microcracks, (2) the grain plane parallel to the secondary sets of microcracks, (3) the hardway plane perpendicular to both rift and grain planes. The microcracks developed in the granite shows higher polution, mean length and density in the order of rift plane, grain plane and hardway plane. The fracturing characteristics of the granite are closely related to the development of these three planes.
Geochemistry of Precambrian Metamorphic Rocks from Yongin-Anseong Area, the Southernmost Part of Central Gyeonggi Massif
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 13, issue 3, 2004, Pages 142~151
The metamorphic rocks of Yongin-Anseong area in Gyeonggi massif are composed of high-grade gneisses and schists which are considered as Precambrian basement, and Jurassic granite which intruded the metamorphic rocks. In this paper, we discuss the geochemical characteristics of metamorphic rocks and granites in this area based on REE and Nd isotope geochemistry. And we also discuss the petrogenetic relationship between metamorphic rocks and granites in this area. Most of Nd model ages (T
Nd/) from the metamorphic rocks range ca. 2.6Ga～2.9Ga which are correspond to the main crustal formation stage in Gyeonggi massif by Lee et. al. (2003). And Nd model ages show that the source material of quartzofeldspathic gneiss is slightly older than that of biotite banded gneiss. In chondrite-normalized rare earth element pattern, the range of (La/Yb)
N/ value from biotite banded gneiss is 37～136, which shows sharp gradient and suggests that biotite banded gneiss was originated from a strongly fractionated source material. However, that of amphibolite is 4.65～6.64, which shows nearly flattened pattern. Particularly, the chondrite normalized REE patterns from the high-grade metamorphic rocks show the REE geochemisoy of original source material before metamorphism. In addition, the values of (La/Yb)
N/ and Nd model ages of granite are 32～40 and 1.69Ga～2.08Ga, respectively, which suggest that the source material of granite is different from that of Precambrian basement such as biotite banded gneiss and quartzofeldspthic gneiss in the area.
Biotite and Plagioclase Ages of the Gneeisses from Gyeonggi Massif
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 13, issue 3, 2004, Pages 152~160
ages were determined from the biotites and plagioclases separated from the Precambrian gneisses of Gyeonggi Massif. Biotites yield
, and plagioclases yield
. These ages are significantly different from the U-Pb zircon ages obtained from the identical samples (
, Song et al., 2001). The ages of biotites and plagioclases can be interpreted to represent independent regional thermal events. The Mesoproterozoic ages recorded by the biotites can be interpreted as a consequence of regional metamorphism followed by differential uplift. We propose that plagioclases record Neoproterozoic ages which are related with igneous activities under the regional extensional regime, related with the breakup of the supercontinent Rodinia existed at that time.
Petrochemical and Physical Characteristics of the Cretaceous Pink Granites in the Jinan Area
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 13, issue 3, 2004, Pages 161~177
The Cretaceous pink granites of the finan area, southwestern Ogcheon belt, are adjacently developed in the eastern part (Keg) and western part (Kwg) as stocks, respectively. Keg of rounded shape occur as mainly medium-coarse grained rocks, whereas Kwg of ellipsoidal shape occurs as medium-coarse grained ones with partly porphyritic and fine-grained textures. Miarolitic cavities of them are often seen and can be observed more frequently in Kwg than Keg. Rose and counter fracture diagrams of the two granites show that Keg and Kwg have more potentiality of non-dimension and dimension to non-dimension stones, respectively. Physical properties such as porosity and absorption ratio have 0.25% and 0.65％, and 0.43% and 1.11%, respectively, which could suggest that emissions of gas phase at later magma stages are abundant in Kwg than those of Keg. From the major and trace elements petrochemisoy, they belong to acidic, peraluminous and calc-alkaline rocks, showing that Kwg are later product than Keg of the same granitic parent magma. REE concentrations normalized to chondrite value have trends of gradual and parallel enriched LREE and depleted HREE. Eu negative anomalies of Kwg are far more severe than those of Keg, which suggest that plagioclase fractionation in Kwg was much stronger than that of Keg. In the magnetic susceptibility vs. petrochemical and modal parameters, they all belong to magnetite-series and I-types, and can be classified as weakly-moderately ferromagnetic rocks. And the above relations could suggest that their susceptibility values are more mainly depended on ferromagnetic opaques than ferromagnetic and paramagnetic assemblages (Bt ＋ Ch ＋ Ser ＋ Op).
