Abstract

Analysis of the genetic relationship of Sn-bearing granitoids with ultrapotassic basic magmatism showed that their metallogeny was determined by the geochemistry of a specific reservoir localized in the continental lithosphere mantle (metasomatized mantle). The granitoid formation is well explained by the binary model of mixing of primary melts (products of the metasomatized mantle) with the continental crustal material. Geochemical studies of basic magmatism of different ages showed that the specific lithosphere reservoir formed in the Middle-Late Jurassic and existed at least till the late Late Cretaceous, i.e., during both tin metallogenic epochs of the Chukchi region.
