  • The Datongxi pluton outcropping in western part of the West Kunlun orogen,consisted of high-K calc-alkaline quartz diorite,quartz monzonite and granite.The quartz diorites contain abundant mafic microgranular enclaves(MMEs) of different shapes.The quartz diorites span a SiO 2 range of 56.5% ~ 65.3% and Mg#range of 0.45 ~ 0.46,characterized by moderate LREE / HREE fractionation,strong LILE enrichment and depleted Nb-Ta and weakly Eu depletion.Relatively to the quartz diorites,the quartz… CONTINUE READING
