Abstract


This workpresents the results of amulti-element lithogeochemical study of the Hercynian Batholith of Ricobayo (Zamora, NW Spain). Several tin deposits are genetically associated with this batholith. Probability plots have been used to prepare contour maps of SiO,, Fe,O,, Na20, K20, CaO, MgO, Rb, Sr and Zr. The geochemical patterns of Ca0 reflects tin-bearing areas and may therefore indicatetin-target areas associated with this type of granite.
