Hydrothermal deposit along fault

Minerals in the pelitic schist of the Sambagawa metamorphic rocks contacting with the Median Tectonic Line, the boundary fault between the Late Cretaceous (100 Ma) low-P Ryoke metamorphic rocks and the early Paleocene (65 Ma) high-P Sambagawa metamorphic rocks. Protoliths of the Sambagawa metamorphic rocks and the Ryoke metamorphic rocks are the Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous (150-130 Ma) accretionary complex. Ages of sedimentary rocks were determined by microfossils, and metamorphic ages by K-Ar radiometric dating of muscovite.
