Areal Distribution Ratios of the Constituent Rocks with the Geologic Ages and Rock Types in the Chungbug-Chungnam-Daejeon Areas

The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 17, issue 4, 2008, Pages 191~205
In order to use the geologic information data such as industrialization of rock resources, site enlargement and development planning, distributive ratios of rock types and geologic ages were obtained by the ArcGIS 9.2 program, and digital geologic and geographic maps of 1:250,000 scale, in the Chungbug, Chungnam and Daejeon areas, respectively. In the Chungbug area, 64 rock kinds are developed and their geologic ages can be classified into 8 large groups. In the geologic ages, the ratios are decreasing in the order of Jurassic, Precambrian, Age-unknown, Cretaceous, Quaternary, Cambro-Ordovician and Carboniferous-Triassic ages, all of which comprise most ratios of 98.48% in the area. In the rock types, the ratios show the decreasing order of Jurassic Daebo granite, Precambrian banded gneiss of Gyeonggi metamorphic complex, Cretaceous biotite granite, Quaternary alluvium, Great limestone group, Lower phyllite zone and Meta-sandy rock zone of age-unknown Ogcheon group, Triassic Cheongsan granite, Precambrian granitic gneiss of Gyeonggi gneiss complex, Pebble bearing phyllite zone of age-unknown Ogcheon group and biotite gneiss of Sobaegsan metamorphic complex, all of which comprise the prevailing ratio of 84.27% in the area. In the Chungnam area, 35 rock types are developed and their geologic ages can be classified into 6 large groups. In the geologic ages, the ratios are decreasing in the order of Precambrian, Jurassic and Quaternary ages, which occupy the prevailing ratio of 87.55% in the area. In the rock types, the ratios show the decreasing order of Jurassic Daebo granite, Precambrian banded gneiss of Gyeonggi metamorphic complex, Quaternary alluvium, Precambrian granite and granitic gneiss of Gyeonggi gneiss complex, Cretaceous acidic dykes, Lower phyllite zone and Pebble bearing phyllite zone of age-unknown Ogcheon group and Quaternary reclaimed land, which occupy the ratios of 74.28% in the area. In the Daejeon area, 11 rock types are developed and their geologic ages can be classified into 5 large groups. In the ages, the ratios are decreasing in the order of Jurassic, Age-unknown and Quaternary, which occupy most ratios of 93.40% in the area. In the rock types, the ratios show the decreasing order of Jurassic Daebo granite, Quaternary alluvium and Lower phyllite zone and Pebble bearing phyllite zone of age-unknown Ogcheon group, which occupy the prevailing ratios of 91.09% in the area.
Microcrack Orientations in Bulgugsa Granites from Southwestern Gyeongsang Basin

We have studied general orientational characteristics of microcracks distributed in Bulgugsa Granites of southwestern Gyeongsang Basin. Microcracks of 131 sets, which were developed on horizontal surfaces of II rock samples collected from Sacheon-Gosung, Geoje-si and Namhae-gun areas, were distinguished by image processing. Then, 45 sets with a distinct linear array on image were sorted out. These microcracks can be comparable with vertical grain planes. Orientations of these microcracks were compared with those of vertical rift and grain planes developed in Cretaceous and Jurassic granites of Korea. In the distribution chart, the agreement of the distribution pattern between microcracks of 45 sets and above vertical planes suggests that microcrack systems developed all over the study area also occur regionally in Cretaceous and Jurassic granites of Korea. Whole domain of the directional angle-frequency chart can be divided into 20 domains in terms of the phases of the distribution of microcracks. Meanwhile, 18 domains from 45 sets of microcracks were compared with the maximum principal stress orientations suggested from previous studies. The majority of maximum principal stress orientations pertain to domain
, and these domains are coincident with the orientation of the 1st and 2nd-frequency orders represented in a rose diagram for 45 sets of microcracks. Representative orientations of open microcrack reflect the maximum principal stress orientations suggested in previous studies.
A Preliminary Study on Granite Suite and Supersuite for the Jurassic Granites in South Korea

Intruding ages for the Jurassic(
) granites in South Korea can be reestablished as
according to the tectonic provinces of magma emplacement. Most Jurassic granites in the Gyeonggi massif have the intrusion ages of
, indicative of middle Jurassic igneous activity. On the other hand the intrusion ages (
) for the Jurassic granites in the Yeongnam massif represent late Triassic to middle Jurassic igneous activity. Using the concept of granite suite/supersuite, the Jurassic granites in South Korea can be hierarchically divided into two supersuites and two suites. Huge batholith of NE-SW direction in the Gyeonggi massif could be designated to be 'Gyeonggi Supersuite', which was originated from the mixture of igneous protolith and more evoloved crustal materials and formed in the post-orogenic environment after collision of the north China and south China blocks. There are one supersuite and two suites in the Yeongnam massif 'Yeongnam Supersuite' could be designated from the NE-SW trend batholith in the massif. This supersuite was originated from the mixture of igneous protolith and evolved crustal materials. Granitic rocks between Andong and Girncheon areas could be defined as 'Andong Suite'. This suite was originated from the mixture of depleted mantle and igneous protolith. The Daegang and Hamchang granties could be designated as 'Daegang Suite'. This suite was formed in the anorogenic environment which was different from the orogenic environment of the other supersuite/suite in the Yeongnam massif.

Famous foreign mining companies in Argentina are Xstrata, Barrick Gold, Yamana Gold, and Anglogold Asaanti respectively. Among these companies firstly a profile of Xstrata including company history, current and future mining projects, production, and financial condition are introduced in this paper for the Korean mining companies those are sincerely looking for reliable collaborative partners not to make serious mistake in investment.
A study on the Surface Cracks in the West Stone Pagoda of Gameunsa Temple Site, Gyeongju, Korea: Examples from the second story stone body and the third story capstone

The west stone pagoda of Gameunsa temple site(National Treasure No. 112) has been seriously damaged by surface weathering, and conservation treatment is needed. In the second story body stone, vertical cracks developed parallel to the main compressional axis. The vertical cracks seem to grow much more with the compression. Chemical and biological weathering along the vertical cracks could have enhanced the crack growth. In the third story capstone, the surface cracks strike toward NE and NW directions, which are intersecting each other. In the eastern and southern parts of the third story capstone, lots of vertical cracks develop along the lines from the axial center to outer rim, whereas horizontal cracks are easily observed at the outer rim of the capstone. On the other hand, a few horizontal cracks develop in the western and northern parts of the third story capstone. This fact indicates that the compression along the vertical axis is not uniform in direction. The west stone pagoda leans toward the east and the south, so it is considered that compression by deviatoric stress prevailed at these directions.
