Petrographic Study of The Hammell Lake Anorthositic Gabbro Complex: Queen's University: Property: Hard Copy: RL Noble, Stephen Russell: Geology, Geochemistry and Isotope Geology of the Trout Lake Batholith and the Uchi-Confederation Lakes Greenstone Belt, Northwestern Ontario: University of Toronto: Ph.D. Stratigraphic. KAMINENI D. C. () A petrochemical study of calcic amphiboles from the East Bull Lake anorthosite-gabbro layered complex, District of Algoma, Ontario. Contrib. by: 4. An example of post-collisional mafic magmatism: the gabbro–anorthosite layered complex from the Tin Zebane area (western Hoggar, Algeria).   The plutons range from unzoned, equant bodies of olivine gabbro less than 1 km in diameter to elongate intrusions up to 25 km in length that are reversly zoned from olivine gabbro cores to quartz diorite rims. The felsic rocks dip inward beneath the mafic core, indicating that this zoning reversal continues to by:

The Fiskenæsset Complex appears to have been intruded as multiple sills of magma and crystal mush into a Mesoarchean oceanic island arc, forming an association of anorthosite, leucogabbro, gabbro, chromitite, peridotite, pyroxenite, hornblendite, and dunite layers. by: Photomicrographs illustrating petrographic characteristics of anorthositic rocks of the Chimalpahad Complex and the bordering meta-volcanic amphibolites.

GEOLOGICAL SETTING The Middle Devonian Presqu’ile barrier is located in the northern part of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (Fig. 1). It is a linear carbonate reef complex at least km long with a width.   Calcic amphiboles are ubiquitous in the East Bull Lake anorthosite-gabbro complex, northeastern Ontario. The mode of occurrence suggests the amphiboles replaced clinopyroxene throughout the stratigraphic levels of the pluton, but they are also prolific in the top younger units. Three types of amphiboles, namely (1) tremolite-actinolite, (2) actinolitic Cited by:
