Petro-geochemical study of Mt. Namjagbarwa region, Tibet, China

  • Zhang Zhengen
  • Zhao Jinsong


The rock types and mineral compositions of the Mt. Namjagbarwa region have been studied. Petro-chemical analyses and calculations show that there are two types of metamorphic rock: ortho-and para-rocks in this region with the former being dominant. The results of trace element and REE analyses indicate that the original rocks are of multiple source with the continental tholeiites as the main source.
