Description
Summary:The granitic rocks of Abu Dob stock, Eastern Desert, Egypt are petrochemically characterized. Results of 12 new chemical analyses are presented and processed according to several chemical parameters. The average chemical composition of Abu Dob granitic rocks agrees broadly with low-calcium granite of TUREKIAN and WEDEPOHL, [1961]. The granitic rocks belong to the calcalkaline series. Modal and chemical classifications of these granitic rocks are advanced. Magmatic origin is suggested for the investigated rocks based on experimentally studied systems.
