Summary:The massif-type anorthosites of the province were emplaced as crystal mushes of plagioclase, lubricated by noritic liquids crystallizing along a P-T gradient, and containing aggregates of plagioclase and/or Al-rich orthopyroxene megacrysts, formed in a magma chamber at the base of a thickened crust. Syn-emplacement deformations were produced in the envelope and within the plutons, where they started in the magmatic and ended in the solid stage. The anorthositic suite can be assigned to three magma types: basaltic, jotunitic and charnockitic. Each magma generated part of the suite, with some overlapping. [J.M.H.]
