Low-pressure (andalusite-cordierite -K-feldspar zones) contact metamorphism
is present within ca.
1987), based on oxygen and hydrogen isotope evidence for widespread element exchange between rock and fluid, revealed that basalts from the Skye Main Lava Series were locally affected by contact metamorphism
associated with the intrusion of tertiary Cuillin Complex gabbros and Red Hills granites and hydrothermal alteration due to the convection system induced by such intrusions.
Massive magnetite (magnetite-quartz rock) is spatially related to remobilisation by contact metamorphism
close to granite / pegmatite intrusives;
The settings where magnesite-rich rocks are affected by contact metamorphism
or metasomatism are, therefore, truly rare.
related to intrusion of the pluton has resulted in a distinct alteration halo which hosts known mineralization.
The focus of this paper is to study overprinting contact metamorphism
related to a small calc-alkaline intrusion in low to medium grade regional metamorphic rocks and to model the thermal effects of pluton emplacement at depths of less than 12 km.
Employing contact metamorphism
to assess the conditions of pluton emplacement in southwestern Kellys Mountain, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
Ty-pe 3 alteration occurs mainly in the contact zone between the Huntington Mountain pluton and East Bay Hills Group, suggesting its development during contact metamorphism
