2000): A sustained felsic magmatic system: the Hercynian granitic batholith
of the Spanish Central System.
The intrusion of a granitic batholith
into the Sao Tome mica schist complex about 600 m.
These new prospects occur within the Jurassic-aged Zamora granitic batholith
and were found during follow-up of reconnaissance stream sediment sampling anomalies.
The fault zone is a major structural feature, between a granitic batholith
to the west and andesitic volcanics to the east.
Specifically, the Mandor prospects lie within the western flank of a large multi-phase granitic batholith
which has been intruded by a series of volcanic rocks and their sub-volcanic equivalents, including tonolites, andesites, rhyolites and quartz diorite stocks.
