[SGL31-P10] Plastic deformation of the Saga Granite and Itoshima Granodiorite in the south-eastern part of Sefuri Mountains, northern Kyushu
Keywords:plastic deformation, Saga Granite, Itoshima Granodiorite, Sefuri Mountains
The Saga Granite underwent plastic deformation in this area. The Saga Granite has mylonitic texture composed of plagioclase and K-feldspar porphyroclasts surrounded by fine-grained quartz, biotite and muscovite grains. There are elongated quartz grains in the Saga Granite. Thus, the Saga Granite in this area is classified as protomylonite. There are also fine-grained quartz grains and elongated quartz grains in the Itoshima Granodiorite near contact with the Saga Granite. Amount of those quartz grains decrease to about 800m from contact.
Magnetic suspectibilities of the Itoshima Granodiorite and Saga Granit range from 5.1 to 8.5 and from 0.052 to 0.096 x10-3SI unit, respectively.
