Rare earth abundances and origin of some Indian lamprophyres

D. K. Paul and P. J. Potts
Rare earth abundances and origin of some Indian lamprophyres
Geological Magazine (1981) 118 (4): 393-399


Whole-rock and RE, Th, Ta, Hf, Sc, Co and Ba analyses of six lamprophyres from NE India show similarities with kimberlite. They have light RE-enrichment and greater variation in light RE than heavy RE. A small amount of partial melting of mantle pockets enriched in incompatible elements is thought to explain the lamprophyre compositions.
