SHRIMP zircon geochronology, and geochemical characteristics of metaplutonic rocks from the south western Gyeonggi Block, Korea: Implications for Paleoproterozoic to Mesozoic tectonic links between the Korean Peninsula and eastern China

Kim, Sung Won; Williams, Ian; Kwon, Sanghoon; Oh, Chang Whan


The Hongseong area in the south-western Gyeonggi Block of the Korean Peninsula consists of several Precambrian complexes that were regionally metamorphosed during the Triassic collision between the North and South China Blocks. Paleoproterozoic and Neoproterozoic magmatism and Triassic regional metamorphism in the Hongseong area suggest a possible tectonic link with the Yangtze Craton in the South China Block. The early magmatism in the western Hongseong area was Neoproterozoic, while that in...[Show more]
