Abstract

The trace element contents of biotites and muscovites from Hercynian porphyritic biotite granites and two-mica granites of central Portugal are compared and the trace element partitioning between biotite and muscovite of the two-mica granites has been calculated. Sn and W are highly concentrated in the muscovite (83 %), providing an important source for ore genesis when muscovite undergoes breakdown reactions.
