Two orthogneisses have been recognized in the sierras of Espinal and Maz (Western Sierras Pampeanas, NW Argentina) that were emplaced within a Grenvillian metasedimentary sequence. Microcline, plagioclase and quartz are the main rock-forming minerals, with accessory zircon, apatite-(CaF), magnetite, biotite (Fe/(Fe + Mg) = 0.88-0.91), ferropargasite (Fetotal/(Fetotal + Mg) = 0.88-0.89), titanite (with up to 1.61 wt% Y2O3) and an REE-rich epidote. REE-poor epidote and zoned garnet (Ca and...[Show more]
