Abstract

THE Mountsorrel granodiorite1–3 is situated 7 miles north of Leicester. The intrusion is boss-like in form, about a mile in diameter, and is considered to be Caledonian as it has an isotopic age of 403 ± 18 m.y.4,5. The mineralization which occurred within the granodiorite after consolidation has been studied by many workers; the most recent is King6, who subdivided the mineralization into five stages, the first two being pneumatolytic and the others hydrothermal.
