  • abstract:

    In order to characterize the petrogenesis of the E-W trending Imjinganag belt, we studied the metamorphic rocks of the Yeoncheon Group near its type locality, Yeoncheon - Cheongok area, belonging to the southern part of this fold-thrust belt. The Samgot Formation of the Yeoncheon Group consists of calc-silicate and metapsammitic rocks together with amphibolite and amphibole gneiss. Layers of these metamorphic rocks concordantly occur in a wide area with its length greater than 15 km along their strike direction. Major mineral assemblages of the amphibolite are hornblende + plagioclase ± garnet ± diopside ± biotite ± quartz. Accessory rutile and ilmenite are characteristically replaced by titanite. Metamorphic temperatures and pressures estimated from the garnet - hornblende - plagioclase - quartz geothermo-barometers are 632-736∘C and 7.9-11.1 kbar, respectively. Thus, the regional metamorphism of the study area belongs to the upper amphibolite facies. Furthermore, Sm-Nd and Rb-Sr data of garnet, plagioclase, and whole rock of an amphibolite define mineral isochrons of 231±30 Ma and 222±24 Ma, respectively, suggesting the Triassic metamorphism. These results are consistent with P-T conditions and metamorphic ages reported in the Shandong Peninsula, and support the hypothesis that the Chinese collision belt may extend into the Imjingang belt in the Korean Peninsula.
