The khondalites of the Eastern Ghats Province, India represent a sedimentary sequence of shale–greywacke, but the relatively more ferruginous composition can be attributed to some mafic rocks in the provenance. While a high La/Sc ratio and an insignificant Cr-enrichment over V in the majority of samples indicate dominantly granitic source rocks; a low La/Sc ratio and high Cr/V ratio in some samples indicate some mafic source rocks as well. High La/Sc ratio, LREE (light rare earth element)-enrichment, negative Eu anomaly and negative ɛ values, along with evidence of significant weathering and recycling in the provenance, indicate Old Upper Continental...
