Occurrence and petrochemistry of the granites in the Pocheon-Euijeongbu area
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 91~103
The study area is located at the middle part of Daebo granitic batholith in the Gyeonggi massif. The geology of the area is mostly composed of Precambrian gneiss complex, coarse- grained middle Jurassic and fine-grained early Cretaceous biotite granites, and Cretaceous small stocks and dykes. The gneiss complex consists mainly of banded gneiss, granitc gneiss, some schist and quartzite. The coarse-grained granite can be divided into greyish granite(Gg1 in the margin and slightly pinkish granite(Gp) in the center. The former is hornblende biotite granite characterized by basic clot and xenolith. The latter is generally garnet biotite granite containing only poor basic clot. The fine-grained granite intruded the coarse-grained granite. The K/Ar biotite ages from the granites belong to middle Jurassic and early Cretaceous. The K/Ar biotite ages and geochemical compositions indicate that Gg and Gp were differenciated from a single magmatic body. The granites are calc-alkali and metaluminous-peraluminous. They are S-type(i1menite series) and partly I-type granitedmagnetite series) formed by melting of relatively fixed source composition. Their tectonic settings belong to the compressional suits and VAG of continental margin.
Petorshemical Study on the Mantle Xwnoliths in alkli basalts from S. Korea: P-T Regime of Upper Mantle
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 104~123
Mantle xenoliths in alkali basalt from Boun, Gansung area, and Baegryung island in S. Korea are spinel lherzolites composed of olivine, orthopyroxene, clinopyroxene, and spinel. The xenoliths generally show triple junctions among grams, kink-banding in olivine and pyroxenes, and protogranular and eqigranular textures having m orlentatron of specific direction. Anhedral brown spinels are disseminated in the intergranular spaces of minerals. Mineral compositions are very homogeneous without compositional zonation from rim to core in grains regardless different locahties. Olivine shows Fo. component of 89.0-90.2 and low CaO of 0.03-0.12wt%, orthopyroxene is enstatite with En component of 89.0 - 90.0 and
of 4-5wt%, and clinopyroxene is diopside having En. component of 47.2-49.1 and
of 7.42-7.64wt% from Boun and 4.70-4.91wt% from Baegryung showing local variation. Spinel shows the distinctive negative trend with increasing of A1 and decreasing of Cr, and Mg value and Cr number are 75.1-81.9 and 8.5-12.6, respectively. To estlmate T and P for these mantle xenoliths pyroxene-geothermometers (Wood and Banno, 1973; Wells, 1977; Mercier, 1980; Sachtleben and Seck, 1981; Bertrand and Mercier, 1985; Brey and Kohler, 1990) and Al-solubility geobarometer (Mercier, 1980; Lane and Ganguly, 1980) are used. Temperatures of Mercier (1980) and Sachtleben and Seck (1981) are compatible and equilibrium temperatures of xenoliths, average value of these two, aiie from
, and equihbrium pressures derived from Mercier (1980) are in the range of 12-19 Kb (42-63 Km). These temperatures and pressures seem to be reasonble wlth the consideration of Al-isopleths in MAS system (Lane and Ganguly, 1980) and Fe effect on Al-solubility in orthopyroxene (Lee and Ganguly, 1988). Equllibrium of temperatures and pressures of xenoliths in P-T space belong to ocenanic geothem among the Mercier's mantle geotherms (1980) and are completely different from continental geotherms of S. Africa (Lesotho) and S. India having different geologcal ages. anera1 compositions of spmel-lherzohtes in S. Korea and eastern China are primitwe and paleogeothems of both are very s~mllar, but degrees of depletion of upper mantle could be locally different from each other since eastern China has various depleted xenoliths due to different degrees of partial melting.

Oxygen isotope compositions have been determined for the granitic and the related rocks from the Wolf River Ratholith, Wisconsin in U.S.A. Plutons which belong to the differentiation trend are almost identical in oxygen isotope fractionation, and plutons of undifferential sequences also show oxygen isotope compositions similar to each other, which show little isotope fractionations at high temperature range. In oxygen osotope composition, the country rocks (the Penokean plutonic rocks), which is higher by 1~2 permil than the batholith are improbable source of the batholith. However, the assimilation of parent magma of lower
values than the batholith with the Penokean plutonic rocks might have produced the batholith.

Sulfur isotope compositions have been determined for the granitic and related rocks from the Wolf River Batholith, Wisconsin in U.S.A. Sulfur content and isotope composition of granitic rocks of the Wolf River Ratholith range from 30 to 140 ppm and from 1.1 to 6.5 permil respectively, and are considered to be magmatic. Sulfur content and isotope composition of the Penokean plutonic rocks, surrounding country rocks, range from 31to 381 ppm and from -1.7 to 7.2 permil respectively. The positive correlation observed between sulfur and oxygen isotope data of granitic rocks and the Penokean plutonic rocks may be due to the assimilation of the Penokean plutonic rocks by a primary magma of deep-crustal origin, or to mixing at depth, of a primary magma with another magma having higher
Nature of contact between the Ogcheon belt and Yeongnam massif and the Pb-Pb age of granitic gneiss in Cheondong-ri, Danyang
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 144~152
The Jangsan Quartzite of the Joseon Supergroup and the foliated granite (so-called granitlc gneiss of presumed Precambrian age) of the Yeongnam massif are in direct contact at Cheondong-ri area, 6 km @SE of Danyang. sllthough it has been thought traditionally that the Jangsan Quartzite overlies unconformably the f&ted granite, it is difficult to interpret the contact as an unconformity smce the basal conglomerate in- the lower part of the Jangsan Quartzite does not have any clast of the foliated granite, Rather, recent structural studies of this area indlcate that the contact is a ductile shear zone. However, the sense and age of the shear movement are still problematic. Our mesoscopic and microscopic studies of &tre Cheondong-11 semi-brittle shear zone involving foliated cataclasite and phyllonite, which is a pa& of the Ogdong fault, indlcate a top-to-the northeast shearing, i.e., dextral strike slip. We also performed Pb-Pb dating for the age-unknown foliated granite, since the age of deformed granite ccarr emtrain the maximum age of deformation. The whole rock and feldspar Pb isotape data for the foliated granite and a micaceous xenolith define an isoc chron age of
;MSWD=4.4) which is interpreted as the emplacement age of the granite. This early Proterozoic age agrees with those of Precambrian igneous activity In the Yeongnam massif reported previously. The obtaiPrfid gge confirms the traditional idea about the age of the foliated granite and indicates that other methd(s) should be employed to constrain the age of the shear movement.

Emplacement ages for the granite plutons of the Jurassic and the Cretaceous times in the central Ogcheom Fold Belt were determined by Rb-Sr whole rock and mineral isocheon methods. In addition mineral ages for the plutons were determined by K-Ar and fission track methods. In turn, thermal histories and uplifting rates of the granitic bodies are elucidated from the isotopic ages. The Jecheon(~203 Ma) and Mungyeong(at lest~200 Ma) granites of the Jurassic and the Muamsa, Wolagsan and Daeyasan granites(~110 Ma) of the Cretaceous show high strontium initial ratios [
0.7100],suggesting that the granitic magmas have been generated by partial melting of crustal materials (S-type), or by mixing of mantle and crustal materials. Only mineral ages of the Sogrisan and Hyeongjebong granites (~90 Ma) were determined by K-Ar method, and petrogenesis of them were not defined yet. The two Jurassic granite plutons were cooled rapidly down to
, right after the plutons were slowly cooled down since then, due to their deep emplacment. During the Middle Cretaceous period, the Jurassic Mungyeong granitic pluton was intruded and thermally affected much by the surrounding Wolagsan and Daeyasan granites. Accordingly the Rb-Sr mineral age, K-Ar hornblende and biotite ages of the Mungyeong granite appear to be reduced or reset due to the thermal effects above their blocking temperatures. All the cretaceous granites have been cooled much ore simply and rapidly down than the Jurassic ones below
, owing to their shallow emplacement.
Cystal Boundaries in Igneous Roks: Genetic Classification and Geometric Features
Park, Youngdo ;
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 168~177
Crystal boundaries in igneous rocks are genetically classified in order to predict the geometric patterns of the boundaries which may aid deciphering the textural code in igneous rocks. Crystal boundaries may be formed by two end-member processes;(1) mechanical and (2) chemical removal of interstitial melt. Mechanical removal of the melt will form displacement impingement boundaries, while chemical removal of the melt will form growth impingement boundaries. The positions of boundaries relative to the material points may be affected by secondary processes such as (1) migration and (2) dissolution. The geometric features of crystal boundaries, suggested in this study, may be useful when studying igneous textures and processes, although it may be impossible to determine the suggested features with the analytical techniques currently avilable.
K-Ar biotite ages of pelitic schists in the Jeungpyeong-Deokpyeong area, central Ogcheon metamorphic belt, Korea
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 4, issue 2, 1995, Pages 178~184
The K-Ar ages of biotites, obtained from thirteen pelitic schists in the Jeungpyeong-Deokpyeong area, central Ogcheon metamorphic belt, range from 89 Ma to 213 Ma except for one specimen. These K-Ar ages systematically decrease as the distance between the analyzed specimen and the Jurassic or Creataceous granite decreases. The K-Ar ages of b~otites adjacent to the Jurassic and Cretaceous granites are 166 Ma and 89 Ma, respectively. Thus, the biotite ages are interpreted to result from the partial or complete resetting by thermal activities in association with the intrusion of Mesozoic granites, following the regional-thermal metamorphism at Late Triassic to Early Jurassic times.
