Abstract

The paragenesis of Y, Th, U, Zr and REE accessory minerals in four different late-Variscan granitic associations of the Sierra de Guadarrama are discussed. Characteristics accessory mineralogical paragenetic sequences are found in each association. The occurrence of different minerals is controlled by the initial trace-element contents of the melt, the aluminous index, the Ca content and volatiles, as well as (F, P) contents, fO2 and the LREE/HREE, Th/REE, and U/Th ratios of the melts. The accessory mineral assemblages can be changed by post-magmatic hydrothermal processes. The differences between the accessory mineralogical paragenesis and the individual mineral compositions in the granite rocks are discussed using these parameters, which play a key role in determining the crystallization of accessory REE, Th and U-bearing phases in the studied granitoids. -from Authors
