Zarei Sahamieh, Reza and Pazoki, Amir and Rezaei, Peiman and Saket, Ali (2010) Petrological and geochemical characteristics of the Granitoid complex of astaneh, western Iran, from the point of beneficiation. In: Proceedings of the XI International Seminar on Mineral Processing Technology (MPT-2010), Dec 2010, NML Jamshedpur, India.
The Granitoid Complex of Astaneh closed to Boroujerd belongs to the Sanandaj-Sirjan Zone (SSZ) in the western of Iran. It is elongated and parallel to the prevailing schistosity in the metamorphic rocks by the trend of NW–SE and consists of quartz diorites, granodiorites, monzogranites and acidic dikes (aplites and pegmatites). This complex is of sub-alkaline affinity; belong to the high-K calc-alkaline series, metaluminous to weakly peraluminous, and display features typical of I-type granites. Trace and rare-earth elements distribution patterns for the Astaneh granitoid rocks indicate a distinctive depletion with respect to primitive mantle in Nb, Eu, Sr, Ba, P and Ti relative to other trace elements and a greater enrichment in LILE compared to HFSE. These geochemical characteristics suggest that these rocks derived from a crustal source. The granitoid Astaneh has geochemical characteristics typical of arc intrusives and plot as volcanic arc granites on various discriminant diagrams. This granitoid is typical representatives of a volcanic arc environment, spatially related to an active continental margin. Probably, it is the result of the subduction of Neo-Tethyan oceanic crust below the Iranian microcontinent. All available data are compatible with the idea that these rocks represent the products of convergent margin processes during the Mesozoic.
