Abstract [en]

The Hyttsjo granites occur in the extensively mineralised Langban-Nordmark area in the westernmost part of the Bergslagen ore province. They have been classified as late Svecokarelian granites due to their homogeneous and generally isotropic appearance in addition to a WR Rb/Sr age. Moreover, they have been considered as possible candidates for supplying essential metals to epigenetic mineralisation in this classic ore district. Two Hyttsjo granites yield U-Pb zircon data ages of 1791 2 and 1793 3 Ma, respectively, which overlap with emplacement ages of the adjacent 1.80-1.78 Ga Filipstad suite belonging to the Transscandinavian Igneous Belt (TIB). Mafic rocks occur quite abundantly associated with the Filipstad-type granite (sensu lato) and various types of mafic enclaves as well as hybrid rocks are present, suggesting a co-magmatic origin. Such mafic intrusives are also exposed in the vicinity of most known Hyttsjo-type plutons. Not least our observations that the former exhibit back-veining by granitic melts suggest intimate causal and temporal relationships between granite formation and mafic TIB rocks. The Hyttsjo granites were probably produced through partial melting related to the intrusion of hot, mafic magmas in and along the border between the TIB and the Svecofennian supracrustal and subvolcanic rocks. Thus, all available observations and data suggest that the Hyttsjo granites are intimately related to and most probable a product of TIB magmatism. Also, they do not lend any support for the hypothesis that the formation of the Hyttsjo granites represent a temporally separate intrusive episode. The Hyttsjo granites are therefore unlikely to be discernibly responsible for specific mineralisation in this area.
