Metamorphic evolution of granitic and porphyroblastic gneisses in the Seungju-Suncheon area, the southwestern part of the Sobacksan Massif
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 9, issue 3, 2000, Pages 121~141
Granitic and pophyroblastic gneisses are widely distributed in the Seungju-Suncheon area, the southwestern part of the Sobacksan Massif. Two groups of metamorphic P-T conditions are recognized from granitic gneiss.
(Group I) are estimated from garnet cores and samples with weak retrograde metamorphism.
(Group II) are estimated from garnet rims which have lower pyrope and higher spessartine contents due to the effect of retrograde metamorphism. The metamorphic P-T conditions estimated from porphyroblastic gneiss are
, 2.1~4.8 kbar which are similar to the P-T conditions of Group II in the granitic gneiss. The whole rock-garnet Sm/Nd isotopic ages determined from granitic and porphyroblastic gneisses are, respectively,
. These date indicate that intermediate-P/T type metamorphism represented by Group I may have occurred between the intrusion of granite gneiss and the intrusion of porphyroblastic gneiss(between 1890 Ma~2120 Ma) and two gneisses experienced low-P/T type metamorphism after the intrusion of porphyroblastic gneiss at 1417~1421 Ma.
Petrology of enclave in the Mt. Wonhyo granite, Yangsan city
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 9, issue 3, 2000, Pages 142~168
The granites distributed in the Kyongsang basin contain the rocks which are different from the host rocks, and they are known as magic microgranular enclaves. The genesis of the magic micro-granular enclaves can be divided into four types: (1) rock fragments from country rocks; (2) cumulation of the early crystals in host magma or disruption of early chilled borders; (3) magma mingling; and (4) restite. These enclaves can be easily found in the granites around Mt. Wonhyo, Yangsan city. They are ellipsoidal in shape, and have phenocrysts might be originated from the host rocks and sharp contacts with the granites. Under the microscope, textures such as oscillation zoning, horn-blende-mantled quartz, rapakivi texture, and acicular apatite are observed, and these indicate that the enclaves were originated from magma and then produced by chilling. The evidences showing that the enclaves were formed by magma mingling are: (1) petrographical characteristics; (2) similarity of the compositions between the rim of plagioclase in the enclave and plagioclase in the granite; (3) linear trends of the major elements; (4) total REE content of the enclaves; and (5) Textural and compositional variations from rim to core in zoned enclaves. The magic end member of the enclave is regarded as the aphyric basaltic andesite in Mt. Sinbul-Youngchui area. The granites around Mt. Wonhyo experienced the magma mingling process which was produced by the injection of mafic magma at about 70 Ma, during the crystal differentiation, and then continued the crystallization. The equigranular granites and the micrographic granites in the study area are considered as the results after the magma mingling process.
Petrological study on the Miocene Dangsari volcanic rocks, eastern part of Ulsan city, southeastern Korea
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 9, issue 3, 2000, Pages 169~186
The Miocene volcanic rocks in the Dangsari area, eastern part of Ulsan city, are mainly composed of andesite lava flows and pyroclastic rocks. The andesite lavas are identified as two-pyroxone andesite, comprising phenocrysts of augite (
) and hyperthene (
31.5). The andesitic pyroclastic rocks are largely composed of pyroclastic breccias with alternating tuff-breccia and lapilli tuff, which showing planar layering, and minor amount of andesitic tuff with thin deposits of interlayered tuffaceous shale. According to the petrochemical data, andesitic rocks belong to medium-K calc-alkaline andesite. The position of bulk composition on the AFM diagram and the presence of normative quartz and hypersthene indicate that the volcanic rocks are calc-alkaline. The trace element composition and REE patterns of andesite, which are characterized by a high LILE/HFSE ratio and enrichment in LREE, suggest that they are typical of continental margin arc calc-alkalic volcanic rocks produced in the subduction environment. On the discrimination diagram, the Dangsari volcanic rocks fall into the fields of subduction related continental margin arc volcanic province. The primary magic melts may be derived from about 15% partial melting of mantle wedge in the upper mantle under destructive plate margin. And the melt evolved to calc-alkaline andesite magma by fractional crystallization and the magma was a little contaminated with crustal materials.
Petrology of host granites and enclaves from the Bohyeonsan area, Euiseong Basin
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 9, issue 3, 2000, Pages 187~203
Mafic microgranular enclaves (MME) occur in the granites from the Bohyunsan area. The host granites are generally of granodioritic and granitic compositions. The MME can be divided into magic mineral clusters, quartz diorite and diorite according to their occurrence. Halter variation diagrams show linear trends between the MME and the host granites. Though the rim compositions of plagioclase in the host granites and the MME are similar the core compositions of plagioclase in some host granites show abnormally high An content. The Mg/(Mg+Fe) ratio of hornblende in the host granites gradually increase from the core to the rim. The chemical composition of minerals in the host granites had been affected by more marc magma composition. The modelling of major elements of the MME and hybrid host granites also indicate that they result from simple mingling/mixing between a dioritic magma and the host granite magma. The MME are thus interpreted to be globules of a more mafic magma which intruded the granite magma. Partial equilibration has been achieved between the MME and the host granites after they were commingled with each other.
