Petrology of Latite Ridge Latite in the East Tintic Velcanic Field, Utah in U.S.A.
Kim, Choon-Sik ;
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 1~13
The Latite Ridge Latite in the East Tintic volcanic field, Utah in USA occurs as a welded ash-flow tuff, has 63.7-66 wt%
on an anhydrous basis, and shows calc-alkaline affinities. The rocks fall in the trachyte field of IUGS classification. It is characterized by unusally high
content (5.9-7.6 wt%), relatively high equilibration temperature (950-973
), and biotites with high
content (7.4-8.2wt%). Various differentiation processes were tested using the XLFRAC program to infer the origin of the Latite Ridge Latite. The results suggests that crystal fractionation from shoshonite is one possible process to generate the Latite Ridge Latite. Shoshonite of the East Tintic volcanic field was possibly formed by crystal fractionation from a subduction-related K-, Mg-rich mafic magma.
Heavy Mineral Analysis of the Cretaceous Hayang Group Sandstones, Northeastern Gyeongsang Basin
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 14~23
The northeastern part of the Gyeongsang Basin is widely covered by the Cretaceous Hayang Group (Aptian to Albian). The Hayang Group consists of the IIjig. Hupyeongdong, Jeomgog, and Sagog formations. Heavy mineral analysis was carried out to define the possible source rocks of the Haynag Group snadstones. Heavy minerals separated from IIjig, Hupyeongdong, and Jeomgog sandstones are hematite, ilmenite, leucoxene, magnetite, pyrite, actinolite, andalusite, apatite, biotite, chlorite, epidote, garnet, hornblende, kyanite, monazite, muscovite, rutile, sphene, spinel, staurolite, tourmaline, and zircon. Based on their close association and sensitiveness, the heavy mineral assemblages can be classified into 6 syutes: 1)apatite-green tourmaline-sphene-colorless/yellowish zircon; 2) colorless garnet-epidote-rutile-brown tourmaline; 3) rounded purple zircon-rounded tourmaline-rounded rutile; 4) augite-hornblende-color- less zircon; 5) epidote-garnet-sphene; and 6) blue tourmaline. The possible source rocks corresponding to each assemblage are 1) granitic rocks; 2) metamorphic rocks (schist and gneiss) ; 3) older sedimentary rocks; 4) andesitic rocks; 5) metamorphosed impure limestone; and 6) pegmatite, respectively. Previous paleocurrent data suggest that the sediments of the study area were mainly derived from the northeastern to southeastern directions. Thus, the most possible source areas would be the east extension part of the sobaegsan metamorphic complex to the northeast and the Cheongsong Ridge to the southeast.
Characteristics of Microcrack Development in Granite of the Mungyeong area in Korea
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 24~33
Differential Strain Analysis (DSA) was performed to examine the characteristics of microcracks for the granites from two sites, Noeunri and Gunggiri. The results of the DSA are taken every 5 MPa for the first 50 MPa, then every 10 MPa to a pressure of 100 MPa, and then every 15 MPa to a pressure of 250 MPa. Differential strain was measured on core samples in three horizontal directions, using
rosette strain gages, and one vertical direction. The gradients of cumulative crack strain curves in one vertical direction and three horizontal directions differed from one another, indicating anisotropic crack development in the sample. The magnitude of vertical cumulative crack strain was the highest, indicating that the microcracks from the studied rock are generally developed in horizontal direction. Under the pressure of 240 Mpa, vertical cumulative crack strains for samples N-1, N-2, G-1, and G-2 were
, respectively. Under the pressure of 25O MPa, volumetric crack strains for Gunggiri and Noeunri ranged from
, respectively. Therefore, the amount of microcrackes produced were more distributed in Gunggiri than Noeunri. The ratio of a maximum crack strain to a minimum crack strain was calculated to find the orientations between microcracks and the rift plane of the granites. Generally, the ratio has very high values ranging from 2.42 to 3.43, which suggests most microcracks to be intragranular cracks with the regular orientations. These results indicate that the preferred orientations of microcracks in the granites were almost parallel to the rift plane of the granites.
Granulite xenoliths in porphyroblastic gneiss from Mt. Jiri area, SW Sobaegsan massif, Korea
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 34~45
Mafic granulite xenoliths are found in precambrian porphyroblastic gneiss of the Mt. Jiri area, SW Sobaegsan massif, Korea. The xenoliths are rounded to ellipsoidal in shape, 50-100 cm in length and coarse-grained with granoblastic and foliated texture. The xenoliths consist of orthopyroxene, garnet, biotite, plagioclase, quartz, ilmenite and secondary orthoamphibole. Orthopyroxene is mostly resorbed and rimmed by coronitic orthoamphiboles. Garnets occur as porphyblasts and are zoned with higher pyrope content in cores than in rims. Geothermo-barometry results yield conditions of about
, 6 kb and
, 4 kb for early and retrograde stages of equilibration, respectively. According to available geochronological data, it is suggested that the granulite facies metamorphism occurred prior to 2.1-1.9Ga and that the area was superimposed by the high-grade (over
) metamorphism between 1.9-1.7Ga, followed by cooling during uplift.
A Fluid inclusion study of the Sannae granite and the associated Sannae W-Mo deposit, Southeastern Kyongsang Basin
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 8, issue 1, 1999, Pages 46~55
Fluid inclusions in granite and hydrothermal quartz indicate that three fluids have affected the Sannae granite. The earliest fluid is represented by three-phase aqueous fluid inclusions with high salinity (38 to 46 wt.% NaCl equiv.). It was exsolves from a crystallizing melt and trapped at a relatively high-pressure condition. The secong fluid is represented by two-phase aqueous fluid inclusion with low entectic temperatures (<
). low- to moderate salinity (3 to 24.0 wt.% NaCl equiv.) and high homogenization temperatures$ (
)($. This fluid was trapped at higher pressures than 300-500 bars and precipitated molybdenite and wolframite in quartz veins. It was probably generted by fluid-host rock interactions since they show a wide range of salinity within a narrow range of homogenization temperatures. The final fluid is represented by an aquenous fluid boiling that separated into high-salinity (34-38 wt.% NaCl equiv.) and low-salinity fluid (0 to 8.7 wt.%) at
and 50-150 bars. These boiling fluids precipitated euhedral quartz in miarolitic cavities. The compositions of the final fluid was rather complex in the
system. The Sannae granite was a locus for repeated fluid events including magmatic fluids during the final stage of crystallization, the convection of hydrothermal fluids causing a fluid ascending, fluid boiling, and the local W-Mo mineralization and formation of miarolitic cavities due to thermal, tectonic and compositional properties of the felsic granite.
