Summary:The Kavala pluton is mainly composed of granodiorite with subordinate diorite, tonalite and monzogranite. It is more or less deformed and contains enclaves of dioritic and tonalitic composition, and belongs to the I-type calc-alkaline, metaluminous to slightly peraluminous granites. It shows volcanic arc to post-collision characteristics. The variations of major and trace elements and the REE patterns suggest a tonalite-granodiorite-monzogranite fractionation sequence and exclude diorite and enclaves. The average crystallization conditions were calculated for the main rock-type as 6.1 kbar and 749°C. [K.P.K.]
