Summary:The mineralogy and principal chemical characteristics of the Ohmine I-type and S-type granitic rocks of Miocene age, Kii peninsula, central Japan, are summarized. The S-type contain higher SiO2 with higher normative Q + ab + or, and Al2O3/(CaO + Na2O + K2O) ratios, lower Sr, and higher 87Sr/86Sr and 18O/16O ratios, compared to the I-type granites. Accessory ilmenite, rutile, pyrrhotite, pyrite and chalcopyrite are common, and their parageneses were determined by modes of occurrence as inclusions within the rock-forming minerals. Parageneses changed with cooling of the granites, with subsolidus reactions for the sulphides occurring in groundmass and inclusions until the T fell to <300°C. S and Cu were lost through the silicates, but removal of Ni through the silicates and along grain boundaries was restricted (the distribution frequency of Ni-pyrrhotite is higher in inclusions than in the groundmass, and higher in I-type enclaves than in host I-type rocks). Ni- pyrrhotite is common in I-type granites, but rare in S-type rocks, sedimentary enclaves, restites and country rocks. This eliminates the possibility that the S-type rocks formed through interaction of I-type magma and sedimentary rocks, or by mixing of I-type and ideal S-type magmas, but were derived from partial melting of intermediate igneous rocks containing hornblende and plagioclase. S-type granites were formed from partial melting of sedimentary rocks containing biotite and orthoclase. [R.K.H.]
