Fresh basalts from the Ontong Java Plateau (OJP) and the Shatsky Rise show lithium enrichments comparable to those of mid-oceanic ridge basalts (MORBs) and ocean island basalts (OIBs), with Li contents being significantly higher at a given MgO content. The Li isotopic compositions of the Shatsky Rise basalts (δ7Li = +6‰ to +7‰) are at the higher end of the range exhibited by OIBs, whereas OJP basalts (δ7Li = +3‰ to +5‰) have Li isotopic compositions similar to MORBs. Among all the basalts from the two oceanic large igneous provinces (LIPs), one sample from the Shatsky...
