Abstract

"Regional variations in modal analyses of the Chandos Lake pluton (Ontario) and the Beinn an Dubhaich granite are compared. Trend surface analysis maps for the latter area show a southwest 'grain' parallel to the axis about which King (1960) suggested the sheet of granite is folded. The modal data thus appear to confirm King's hypothesis, and to indicate a more mafic base and increase in quartz content upwards through the sheet. The value to petrogenesis of quantitative variation studies of rock masses is briefly discussed."
