1Daw Khin Myat Than NweGeology Investigation of Naung Si Paw Village Area, Waing Maw TownshipThe study area is situated in the south eastern part of near Naung Si Paw village, Waing- Maw township in Kachin State of the northern Myanmar. The study area is mainly composed of acid volcanic rocks.Rock units in the study area are granodiorite, dacite and rhyolite. In granodiorite unit, myrmekitic texture is also observed in thin section. In dacite unit development of flow structure and occurrence of stratified nature indicates that lava was derived from a wet magma. In the study area, southern part of the rhyolite are possibly Cretaceous – Early Eocene age. Rhyolite rocks in this area are the extreme fraction action product of a basaltic magma. It is believed that the rock is derived from the calc- alkaline rhyolite magma. The youngest rhyolite is well expose.
2Daw Khin Swe LinnA study on rock types along the western bank of the Ayeyarwaddy River From Myitson to MyitkyinaThe study area is situated at the north of Myitkyina. It is bounded by N 25 25 to 25 43 30 and E 97 28 to 97 32. The study area is mainly composed of igneous and sedimentary rocks with minor amount of metamorphic. Igneous rocks of ultrabasic, diabase and basalt. Sedimentary rocks include sandstone, siltstone, conglomerate, shale, limestone, greywacke and chert. Metamorphic rock consists of chlorite schist.
3Me Me Aung, Than Than NuPetrographic Criteria and Petrogenetic Significance of Metasedimentary Rocks of Shwepyi-Letpanhla area,
Singu Township
The Shwepyi-Letpanhla area is situated about 70km north of Mandalay. The main lithology of the study area is metamorphic (metasedimentary and metaigneous) and igneous. The present work deals with the petrography and petrogenesis of metasedimentary rocks.Based on their mineral paragenesis, the metasedimentary rocks of the study area can be grouped into metacarbonates and metapelites. Occurrence of mineral assemblages in metacarbonates and metapelites indicate that the metamorphism of the study area falls within the upper greenschist facies to the amphibolite facies and the metamorphic grade is low to medium.
4Me Me Aung, Than Than Nu, Min AungPetrogenesis of Metacarbonate Rocks Exposed in the
Nyaungwun-Malegyi Area, SinguTownship
The Nyaungwun-Malegyi area is situated about 44 miles north of Mandalay. The rock units exposed in the study area are metamorphic and igneous. The presence of prominent mineral assemblages such as tremolite + calcite, diopside + calcite, diopside + forsterite + quartz in metacarbonate points out the study area falls within the upper limit of the greenschist facies to the lower limit of the granulite facies.In addition, three well-defined isograds; tremolite, diopside and forsterite isograds, are recognized. The temperature for the first occurrence of tremolite in marble represents ~ 500°C and diopside indicates ~ 670°C. Moreover, reaction isograd interpretation indicates that the tremolite + calcite-out isograd marks forsterite-in isograd at pressure below 3kbar explaining the coexistence of diopside and forsterite in the study area. For detectable amount of forsterite higher pressure condition is required. Therefore, it can be concluded that the metamorphic reactions occurred during metamorphism in the study area were polybaric towards high pressure, more probably higher Pco2, in the course of time. The metamorphic sequence of the present area points out explicitly that the original sedimentary sequence was siliceous dolomitic limestone, quartz-rich limestone and pelites. This succession is well correlatable to the Ordovician strata in both northern and southern Shan states. According to the radiometric dating, metamorphic rocks of the study area were metamorphosed during late Eocene to Middle Miocene.
5Me Me Aung, Than Than NuDefining Metamorphic Grade and Zones deduced from Mineral Assemblages of Metacarbonate Rocks exposed at Mandalay Hill, Mandalay TownshipThe Mandalay Hill is situated at the northeastern edge of the Mandalay City. It lies from north to south, its altitude being 236.5 m above the sea level and its height going up to 167.44 m. The rock units exposed in the study area is metamorphic (metabasite, metapsammite, metapelite, metacarbonate and skarn) and igneous rocks.The most abundant metamorphic unit in the area is metacarbonate rocks. The present work deals with the defining metamorphic grade and zones based on the mineral assemblages of metacarbonate rocks. On the basis of the prominent mineral assemblages in metacarbonates, the study area falls within the amphibolite facies for regional metamorphism and pyroxene hornfels facies for the contact metamorphism. Metamorphic grade in the study area is medium. Metacarbonates of the study area are represented by two distinctive mineral zones: diopside/forsterite and diopside + forsterite zones although complete succession and lateral continuation are not noticeable for metabasite, metapsammite and metapelite. The time of metamorphism of the metamorphic rocks in the study area is probably late Eocene to middle Miocene.
6Me Me Aung, Than Than Nu, Min AungPetrogenesis of Igneous Rocks in the Nyaungwun-Malegyi Area, Singu Township, Mandalay Region The Nyaungwun-Malegyi area is situated about 44 miles north of Mandalay. The rock units exposed in the study area are metamorphic and igneous. According to the mineralogy and their mineral chemistry, the igneous rocks such as biotite microgranite, pegmatite and leucogranite possess peraluminous nature and calc-alkaline series.In addition their crystallization temperatures are about 690°C and 650°C respectively. The depth of igneous emplacement of the study area is estimated at mesozone to epizone. According to the mineralogy and their mineral chemistry, the igneous rocks such as biotite microgranite, pegmatite and leucogranite possess peraluminous nature and calc-alkaline series. In addition, it can be considered that S-type or ilmenite series granitic rocks of the study area are interpreted to have been originated from supracrustal source.
7Me Me Aung, Hnin Min Soe, Aung Naing ThuPetrographic data of Igneous Rocks of the Ching Hkrang-Longazup area, Myitkyina Township, Kachin StateThe Ching Hkrang-Longazup area is located about 16 km north of Myitkyina. It covers approximately 128 km². The igneous rocks exposed in the study area posses mafic to ultramafic in composition. Metamorphic rocks (serpentinite, schist and quartzite) and sedimentary rocks (mudstone, siltstone, chert and greywacke) are rarely found in this area.The ultramafic rocks are made of especially peridotite with minor dunite. In thin section, dunite consists almost entirely of olivines with accessory chromite. Peridotite can be subdivided into three types: wehrlite, lherzolite and harzburgite. Harzburgite is the most predominant rock type in the study area. Most of them are partially to completely serpentinized. Microscopically, they consist mainly of olivine, enstatite, diallage and serpentine with accessory picotite and chromite. They show holocrystalline, hypidiomorphic to allotriomorphic granular texture. Mafic igneous rocks comprise olivine gabbro, dolerite and basalt. Under microscope, these rocks composed mainly of plagioclase, pyroxene, olivine and hornblende with minor amount of iron ore, epidote, quartz and serpentine. Olivine gabbro possesses medium to coarse grained, hypidiomorphic granular texture. Basalt is generally holocrystalline texture, with occasional porphyroblastic. Dolerite exhibits doleritic, ophitic and subophitic textures. Field data and microscopic criteria collectively suggest that the rocks and their related structures exposed at the study area represent one of the ophiolite suites in Myanmar. In accordance with the petrographic criteria, several grains of chromites are well observed in thin section of ultramafic rocks and serpentinites. Therefore, further studies should be done for exploration of chromite in ultramafic units.
8Me Me Aung, Than Than Nu, Myat Hnin NgwePetrography of Metacarbonate Rocks exposed in the Pinlegyi-Letpabde Area, Singu Township: Criteria for PetrogenesisThe research area is situated about 80 km north of Mandalay. It is compound mostly by metamorphic ( metapelite, metacarbonate and metaigneous) and associated igneous rocks. The present work deals with the petrography of metacarbonate rocks. Based on the constituent mineral assemblages, metacarbonate rocks can be grouped into seven types, white marble, tremolite marble, spinel marble, phlogopite-diopside marble, diopside marble, forsterite marble and diopside calc-silicate rock.Occurrence of calcite+ graphite +_ philogopite, calcite spinel+_ philogopite, calcite+tremolite+ quartz = epidote, calcite + diopside + philogopite +_ graphite, calcite + diopside + quartz, calcite + diopside + clinozoisite + quartz + plagioclase and calcite + phlogopite + forsterite +_ spinel in marbles and diopside cal-silicate rocks indicate that study area falls within the upper greenschist facies to the amphibolite facies for regional metamorphism and pyroxene hornfels facies fo r contact metamorphism. Besides, metacarbonates of the study area show three distinctive metamorphic zones; tremolite zone, diopside zone and forsterite zone and the metamorphic grade is low to medium.
