Abstract

The Cantabrian Zone constitutes a geological domain with a qualitatively important igneous activity. In this region plutonic bodies are scarce but volcanics are abundant in Cambrian-Upper Devonian and Permian horizons. Volcanic rocks are also found within the Narcea (Precambrian) Formation, near its limit to the West Asturian-Leonese Zone. In the Cantabrian Zone, numerous small postkinematic stocks also occur which show a variety of characteristics. The most important area for these stocks is the Palentian Zone, where more than 200 stocks and plugs have been catalogued (Corretgé et al. 1987). Research on the igneous acitivity in this area is still scarce in spite of the considerable number of articles which refer to partial aspects of the igneous and regional rocks (Frets 1965; Rupke 1965; de Sitter and Boschma 1966; van Veen 1966; Savage 1967; Suárez and Marcos 1967; Boschma 1968; Savage and Boschma 1980; Suárez 1970, unpublished work; Suârez and García 1974; Loeschke 1982, 1983; Loeschke and Zeidler 1982; Martínez García 1981, 1984; Heinz et al. 1985; Corretgé et al. 1987; Suárez and Corretgé 1987).
