Located in the northeastern part of the Qinhang metallogenic belt, Lizhu area in Zhejiang has developed a series of skarn type iron polymetallic deposits or ore spots, and mineralization is closely related to the late Jurassic intrusive rocks in the NE-trending fold-fault zone. Researches on the geological and geochemical characteristics of intrusive rocks show that the main rock types are middle-fine grained granodiorite and coarsegrained or fine-grained granite. The former type comprises amphibole-bearing calc-alkaline ( low potassium-high calcium) granitoids (ACG) characterized by low Si02, K20+Na20 and K20/Na20, rich CaO, MgO and FeOT, relative enrichment of K, Rb, Ba, Th, U, Zr, Hf, slight depletion of Sr, Ti, negative Eu anomalies along REE distribution curve with weakly right-oblique nature, similar geochemically to the I-type granite. The latter type consists of alkali-rich calc-alkaline (high potassium-low calcium) granitoids (KCG), characterized by high Si02)K20+Na20 and K20/Na20, low CaO, MgO and FeOT, enrichment of K, Rb, Th, U, Nb, Ta, Zr, Hf, strong depletion of Ba, Sr, Ti, and obvious negative Eu and "V"-type REE patterns, thus similar geochemically to the A-type granites. The petrogenetic tectonic environment was converted from the subduction collision to post-collision or post-orogeny, consistent with the conversion of the tectonic environment in South China, thus providing a new constraint for the tectonic-magmatic evolution in South China. Furthermore, both the two types of granites widespread in Zhejiang have good prospecting potential.

This paper reports retrograde eclogite that occurs in lanticular form in Xikou area of Jiangshan-Shaoxing suture zone. The retrograde eclogite consists of the mineral assemblage of amphibole+garnet+clinopyroxene+plagioclase+quartz. A clear 'whiteeye' structure is well developed, garnet is rimmed with symplectitic plagioclase, and clinopyroxene is surrounded by symplektic plagioclase and amphibole. Zircon U-Pb dating by LA-ICP-MS shows that the peak metamorphic age is (451+8/-18)Ma. Exposures of retrograde eclogites in the Jiangshan-Shaoxing suture zone provide new insight for the collisional process between the Cathaysia block and the Yangtze block.
