Abstract

"A narrow layer of quartzite, emplaced within epidiorite by fold-thrusting, is transformed to albite-trondhjemite aplite and contiguous zones of the epidiorite are enriched in biotite. By reference to six chemical analyses it is found that, with but small additions of potash these transformations can be accounted for by the combined processes of (a) mechanical mixing of the initial quartzite and epidiorite, and (b) metamorphic inter-diffusion between this mixture and the adjoining epidiorite."
