Are older metamorphic rocks intruded by biotite tonalite

All older rocks can be intruded by younger intrusive igneous rocks The exact composition of the older rocks and the exact composition of the intrusive rocks don't matter in the slightest However - 'gneiss' is not an intrusive igneous rock GneisGet price

Geochemistry and Petrogenesis of Granitoids around the

The Peninsular Gneiss surrounding the N-S trending Kolar Schist Belt in the Dharwar Craton includes several components of granitic rocks that range in composition from tonalite to granite On the west the different phases are referred to as the Dod the Dosa and the Banded Gneiss and the Patna Granite The gneisses on the east are dominantly Get price



Slab-sample studies of the tonalite indicate the 3 1 Ga age is a metamorphic one and that the source material had a pre-history at that time springer The granitic rocks are exposed at topographic highs and along the contacts with the country rocks while the tonalites and granodiorites are found towards the center of the pluton at topographic lows Get price
