The Jiaodong Province of China: Alteration and ore mineralogy
Chen, Y.; Zang, W.; Fyfe, W. S.; Chen, G. Y.; Sun, D. S.
The Jiaodong gold province is situated in the southeast margin of the Sino-Korean Platform. The basement rocks are Archean and Proterozoic metamorphic rocks. The Archean rocks are mainly composed of gneisses, (plagioclase) amphibolite and biotite schists. The Proterozoic rocks include granulites, schists, marbles and iron formation (conglomerate?). Mesozoic sedimentary and volcanic rocks occur within extensional basins. Mesozoic granitoids intruded the basement. The structures are an E-W-trending anticlinorium in the basement complex, and large-scale NE-SW-and NNE-SSW trending fault zones of Mesozoic age.
