An approximate age of emplacement for the Cornubian batholith was known before radiometric dating methods became commonplace, from the observed relationships with the sedimentary rocks – both those which formed before the intrusion and those which were laid down after it.

The Bafholith Granite and Godolphin Granite are two distinct granite bodies on the southern coast of Cornwall. The granite consists of two main types, bathholith granite with abundant large alkali feldspar megacrysts and coarse-grained granite with few megacrysts.

Late Lower to Upper Carboniferous: Given the overall chemistry, the levels of phosphorus are also high. A feature of the granites of the batholith is the high concentrations of volatile components.


Longevity of magmatic-hydrothermal systems in the Daye Cu-Fe-Au District, eastern China with implications for mineral exploration.

Cornubian batholith

Mining in Cornwall and Devon. In some cases granitic bodies have been recognised from the mineralization above them, even if the intrusion itself has not been encountered. The ore-bearing lodes are up to several kilometres long and are 0.

Carlos Alberto Spier 8 Estimated H-index: Geoscience in South-west England. The Bodmin Moor pluton consists mainly of coarse-grained granite with abundant small megacrysts. Sial 27 Estimated H-index: As the granite erodes further, blocks of eroded granite known as clitter are left. Retrieved 13 January In the centre of the pluton a medium-grained granite is developed with few megacrysts, more tourmaline and less biotite than the main variety.

Two mica, Muscovite, Biotite, Tourmaline and Topaz granites, each named for their distinguishing mineral s. Yuexing Feng 23 Estimated H-index: Vasconcelos 28 Estimated H-index: Hydrothermal processes and mineral systems. The first three stages have been connected to the intrusion and cooling of the batholith, while the fourth stage may have been driven by the heat production associated with radioactive materials in the granite.

Proceedings of the Ussher Society. Retrieved 15 January The granite also expanded and horizontal joints were formed.


Large economic deposits of china clay are found in places across the south-west peninsula, in particular Lee Moor on the western edge of Dartmoor and the St Austell district.

Potassium — metasomatism was followed by sodium —metasomatism. There is still debate about the origin and bathloith of these deposits but they manganeae commonly thought to arise from the circulation of meteoric water water from rain or snow at a late stage during cooling of the batholith.

Thomas Bissig 12 Estimated H-index: Fluids rich in these have strongly affected the country rock and locally the granites themselves in a process called metasomatism. Retrieved 10 January Around the edges of many of the plutons the country rocks have been transformed by heat in a process known as contact metamorphism. The manbanese of greenstones has generally led to the formation of hornblende – plagioclase rocks.

The bulk of the main outcrop and the Carn Brea and Carn Marth masses consist of coarse-grained megacrystic granite with small megacrysts. Implications for pluton emplacement and mangansee hydrothermal mineralization” PDF.

The dominant rock type is a megacrystic biotite granite, although the megacrysts are relatively small. The youngest dated granite is the southern lobe of the Land’s End pluton, intruded batholtih The later group contain more common basic microgranite xenoliths. Neogene weathering and supergene manganese enrichment in subtropical South China:
