30] (oligo-clase-andesine) such that a magma crystallizing this composition of plagioclase will not increase in Be content until more albitic plagioclase crystallizes; (2) white mica; Be can enter the mica structure, therefore intrusions containing white mica potentially have higher Be contents, and are less capable of producing subsequent high-Be melts; and (3) cordierite; it can incorporate a large amount of Be and garnet cannot; therefore, late magmas associated with garnet-bearing intrusions are potentially more Be-rich.
The basement shows brittle deformation and low-grade metamorphic overprint that resulted in development of epidote chlorite albitic plagioclase and actinolite before the emplacement of the granitoids.
89 (Table 2) indicating an alkaline affinity, in agreement with the orthose enrichment of the most albitic plagioclase (Fig.
Feldspar separates consisted of alkali feldspar, either albitic plagioclase or potassium feldspar, or mixtures of both.
Drill hole ASX-03-07 intersected several large oxide and sulphide sections including near surface specular hematite and magnetite and albitic alteration with copper, cobalt and significant uranium values.
It is a medium grained orthogneiss with a cataclastic fabric that apparently developed after an earlier fabric of granoblastic character, and consists of quartz, albitic plagioclase, biotite, chlorite, sericite, epidote-clinozoisite, ilmenite, pyrite, apatite and zircon.
At all sites, the pegmatites are predominantly albitic, with abundant fine- and coarse-grained tantalite.
These zones of secondary albite, previously been referred to as albitic aplite (Hutchinson 1982; Hughes 1995), are locally pervasive and such areas are preferentially enriched in Ta-Nb and phosphate minerals (Kontak 2004).
