A geochemical study was carried out on Lower Cretaceous sedimentary rocks of the Wakino Subgroup, Kenseki Formation, and Sasayama Group, distributed in the Inner Zone of Southwest Japan. The chemical characteristics of the Lower Cretaceous sediments indicate that these rocks are immature firstorder sediments derived from igneous and/or meta-igneous rocks of predominantly felsic composition. The sediments from the Kenseki Formation and the Sasayama Group, however, show high Cr and Ni abundances… CONTINUE READING
