Infiltration may have been the dominant mechanism during contact metamorphism
, with H2O-rich fluids derived from the crystallization of a granodiorite intrusion penetrating calcareous rocks in the contact aureole giving rise to a skarn-type mineralogy and the formation of Ti-clinohumite.
Only for the data of 60-110 m, it seems that the BET surface area decreases close to the intrusion; this may be caused by the coal matrix shrinkage and coal inner heterogeneity when the coal is cooling after the contact metamorphism
. The number 7 and 8 coal seams are just under the sill; magma can intrude directly into the coal seams along the fault fracture zone.

5, Table la, b), despite their potential association with magmatic fluids during contact metamorphism
. The isotopic results suggest that these samples were overprinted by low-[sup.18]O hydrothermal fluids.
On one specific sample, with evidence of contact metamorphism
, microstructures were described in more detail in order to characterize those linked to contact metamorphism
Not only are the minerals fascinating, but Crestmore's unique contact metamorphism
and skarn geology are particularly well-exposed for study.
While the complete profile of the eastern anticlinal limb has been preserved despite being affected by contact metamorphism
(cordierite occurs to the west of Ceska Ves village as first Stankova, 1975), the southern anticlinal limb has been preserved only as separate blocks consisting of xenolith-bearing granite and tectonic blocks (at Vapenna and Skorosice).
Furthermore, a low-grade contact metamorphism
has been identified in the sedimentary host-rocks at the Moncayo sector (Bastida et al., 1989).
(1996) noted that contact metamorphism
of folded strata of the Stirling belt by the Chisholm Brook suite implies that folding of the Stirling belt can be bracketed between ca.
and metasomatism occurred at the margins of the pluton and in large roof pendants of limestone that were converted to skarns.
2006) have been demonstrated to be the result of contact metamorphism
of the Goldenville and Halifax groups around Devonian and Carboniferous granitoid plutons (White et al.
The limestones in the neighborhood are contaminated with many different skarn minerals such as garnet, epidote, wollastonite and vesuvianite which were formed by regional or contact metamorphism
