The crustally derived High Himalayan leucogranites (HHL) are characterized by strong isotopic heterogeneity and occurrence of magmatic muscovite. Such attributes indicate that the HHL were non-convecting magma bodies and crystallized at pressure-equivalent depths of more than 8.5 km. We have performed one-dimensional thermal modelling in order to simulate the process of incremental growth of a laccolith whose roof is tectonically removed during intrusion, in a context of crustal exhumation due to channel flow. The objective is to define under what conditions HHL laccoliths emplaced close to active normal faults may be built without convecting while crystallizing muscovite. The results...
