Geological mapping and zircon U–Pb laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) dating has identified a Mesoarchean (2857 ± 17 Ma) geological unit in the Luanjiajie area of the northern margin of the North China Craton, within the northern part of Liaoning Province, China. This unit is dominated by tonalitic and trondhjemite gneisses that form part of a typical tonalite–trondhjemite–granodiorite (TTG) rock assemblage. These Mesoarchean gneisses are enriched in Na and depleted in K, yield K2O/Na2O ratios of 0.34–0.50, have Rittmann index (σ) values of 1.54–3.04, and are calc-alkaline. They have EuN/EuN* values of 0.77–1.20 (average of 1.03), indicating that these samples have negligible Eu anomalies, and yield high LaN/YbN values (4.92–23.12). These characteristics indicate that these Mesoarchean gneisses have fractionated rare earth element (REE) compositions that are enriched in the light REE (LREE) and depleted in the heavy REE (HREE), with steeply dipping chondrite-normalized REE patterns. These gneisses are also enriched in Rb, Th, K, Zr, and Hf, and are relatively depleted in Ta, Nb, P, and Ti. In summary, the magma that formed these tonalitic and trondhjemite gneisses was most likely derived from the partial melting of lower-crustal basaltic rocks during subduction. The timing of formation (2.85 Ga) of the Luanjiajie tonalite and trondhjemite gneisses probably represents the timing of initiation of plate tectonics within the LongGang Block during a SE-directed subduction event. The presence of inherited zircons with ages of >3.0 Ga within the Luanjiajie gneisses suggests that this area may contain as yet undiscovered rocks that formed before 3.0 Ga. © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group

89 Au geochemical anomalies are delineated by using 1/200000 regional geochemical exploration data. By researching regional geochemical characteristics and the relationship with the geological background, the author points out that: the main factors causing high background of Au geochemical anomalies are Gaixian and Dashiqiao formation of Liaohe group, intrusions of Mesozoic intermediate-acid intrusive rocks. The elements combination types of typical anomalies are determined by using factorial analysis,cluster analysis and other mathematical methods with the combination of elements association in typical anomalies:the composite anomaly of Baiyun gold deposits is Au-As-Sb, Maoling gold deposit is Au-As-Bi-Mo, Wulong gold deposits is Au-As-Bi-W, Xiaotongjiapuzi gold deposit is Au-As-Bi-Mo-Sb. By using multivariate statistical analysis method,62 ore-caused anomaly are preferred in 89 Au geochemical anomalies delineated. On this basis, the 62 anomalies are divided into 4 kinds of anomaly types reference to elements combination types of typical anomalies,the classification results of ore-caused anomalies are: 4 geochemical anomalies of Baiyun type,36 geochemical anomalies of Maoling type,11 geochemical anomalies of Wulong type, 11 geochemical anomalies of Xiaotongjapuzi type. According to the results, the prospecting direction is provided for the future of gold exploration. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Discovered and mined in recent years, the Jinchangliang gold deposit has not yet been studied in its genetic type. In this paper, the geological features of ore deposit, S isotopic composition, metallogenic age and elements geochemical of the granite closely related to mineralization were discussed. The results of the geological features of ore deposit and S isotopic composition show that ore-bearing hydrothermal solution was closely related with the intrusion of magmatic. The granite is characteristic of high silica SiO2=72.38%-72.98%, high aluminum and Al2O3=14.22%-14.35%, low calcium CaO=0.16% -0.26%, and low value of FeOT/MgO (6.86-7.73), and rich in alkalis Na2O+K2O=9.11%-9.24%, suggesting that it is high-K calc-alkaline, highly fractionated, weak aluminum A-type granite. The REE patterns are inclined to right and show intense fractionation between LREE and HREE, without obvious negative Eu anomaly (δEu=0.80-0.84). The primitive mantle-normalized spidergrams are characterized by depletion of Ba, U, Ta, Nb, Zr, Ti and P, which implies that the granite has the characteristics of the crust-mantle mixing. S isotopes also indicate that the material source of gold deposit is closely related to the granite rocks. The LA-ICP-MS Zircon U-Pb age of the Damiao rock mass medium-fine grained monzogranite (belonging to the early Indo-China) is (245±1) Ma. It shows that Jinchangliang gold deposit was not formed in Yanshanian, but the early Indo-China. Specifically speaking, the deposit was formed in the collision stage of the North China plate and the Siberian plate. © 2015 Geological Society of China.

This paper has reported the petrography, geochemistry and geochronology of Jianshanzi, Baoxing and Shudetun plutons in the Kaiyuan area of the eastern section of the northern margin of North China, and discussed their formation age, rock genesis and tectonic environment. Zircon U-Pb dating results show that Jianshanzi pluton was formed in Early Triassic (251 ±1. 3Ma), Baoxing pluton was formed in Middle Triassic (235 ± 1. 3Ma) and Shudetun pluton was formed in Late Triassic (224 ± 1. 9Ma). The Jianshanzi pluton is dominated by adamellite, with high Si and low Mg content, and belonged to calc-alkaline series. This unit is enriched in the light ion lithophile elements ( e. g., Rb, K, Ba and Th) but is relatively depleted in the high field strength elements ( e. g., Ta, Nb, Hf and Zr). They have (Eu values of 0. 55 ~ 1. 87 and high ( La/Yb) N values of 6. 23 ~ 47. 9. These characteristics indicate that the Jianshanzi adameUites have fractionated REE compositions that are enriched in the light REE ( LREE) and depleted in the heavy REE (HREE). The Baoxing pluton is dominated by granodiorite. This granodiorite is calc-alkaline, with SiO2 concentrations of 52. 36% ~ 74. 06%, Al2O3 of 14. 5% ~ 17. 34% and MgO of 0.61% ~ 3. 66% . In addition, this unit is enriched in the light ion lithophile elements (e. g., Rb, K, Ba and Th) and is relatively depleted in the high field strength elements ( e. g., Ta, Nb, P and Ti) . Furthermore, these samples have negligible Eu anomalies and ( La/Yb)N values of 6. 81 ~25. 6. These characteristics indicate that the Baoxing granodiorites have fractionated REE compositions that are enriched in the LREE and depleted in the HREE. The Shedetun pluton is dominated by diorite, with low Si and high Mg content. This diorite is enriched in K and depleted in Na, with K2O/Na2O ratios of0. 33 ~0. 76, and belonged calc-alkaline series. In addition, the Baoxing pluton is enriched in the light ion lithophile elements ( e. g., Rb, K, Ba and Th) and is relatively depleted in the high field strength elements (e. g., Ta, Nb, P, Ti, Hf and Zr). The Shudetun pluton has negligible Eu anomalies and ( La/Yb)N values of 3. 87 ~ 10. 2, with no obvious fractionation of LREE and HREE. According to the above research, the original magma of the Jianshanzi and Baoxing pluton are originated from partial melting of the lower crust basic rocks, but the Shudetun pluton are originated form depleted mantle wedge. The Triassic magmatites of study area are formed in compressional environment of orogenic stage. Meanwhile, extrusion and collision of the eastern section of the northern margin of North China was lasted to Late Triassic (224Ma). The tectonic transformation of orogenic stage and post orogenic stage (extrusion crustal thickening transition to extensional collapse environment) occurred between Late Triassic and Early Jurassic (224 ~ 180Ma), and also means that lithospheric thinning or destruction might begin in Late Triassic to Early Jurassic (224 ~ 180Ma).

Firstly, the spatial database of Jinzhou-Fuxin gold metallogenic belt was set on the basis of the previous geological, mineral, geophysical and geochemical materials. Then, the regional gold prospecting model of the study area was built. The main prospecting criteria include Archean metamorphic formation, the NE-EW-trending ductile shear belt, the NE-NNE-NW-trending fracture, the Au-Ag-Cu-Zn geochemical anomaly, the gold heavy sand anomaly, the aeromagnetic (ΔT) anomaly zone from 50 nT to 150 nT and the discovered gold deposit. According to the criteria, the predictive variables (evidence factors) were established and the gold potential of the study area with weighting of evidence based on MRAS was evaluated. Finally, the posterior probability (P) of every 2 km×2 km grid unit was calculated and the study area was classified into A, B or C level prospecting areas. The results show that there are 19 prospecting targets circled according to the distribution characteristics of prospecting areas, including 3 A-level targets, 6 B-level targets and 10 C-level targets.

This work engages apatite fission track evidences on thermotectonic history, rock uplift rate, denudation extent in southeastern Altai region. Fission track ages of 14 samples range from (59.4±5.8) Ma to (109.7±8.1) Ma and the length is between (12.0±2.5) μm and (13.7±1.5) μm. Thermal modeling reveals that the samples have a three-stage of uplift-cooling history. The first stage is in an overall initial uplift before 108 Ma, the second stage from 108 Ma to 28 Ma experiences a slow cooling phase, and the last stage through a rapid-cooling process since 28 Ma with a cooling rate 1.25-1.61°C/Ma and denudation amount 1.17-1.50 km, the fast exhumation period in the area. The sample ages could be divided into 4 age groups, reflecting multiple tectonic events with different uplift rates. The paleotopography altitude changes from 3895 m to 821 m, 2250 m to 762 m etc., and the amplitude of changes reaches to 3300-1400 m since 90 Ma. The phenomenon of Alpine turning to valley and valley uplifting is visible in the studied area, indicating various stages of paleotopography. Based on inversion of ancient landform and equilibrium correction, the equilibrium rebound would play an important role in the rock uplift during the Altai post-orogenic period.
