Relation between structural order of Neogene porphyritic Diorites and tectonism in east of Rabor, Kerman

Category Tectonic & Seismotectonic
Group GSI.IR
Location 21th symposium on geosciences
Holding Date 24 May 2008

   Abstract:
      The Neogene diorite porphrys, east of Rabor with a northeast-southwest trend, are injected into Oligocene-Miocene volcano sedimentary rocks consist of upper red formation, pyroclastics, red siltstone, conglomerate and grayish color limestone. Structurally the diorites were outcropped between two major running right-lateral fault systems of Dehshir-Baft and Sardiuyeh. The action of these two faults led to guide to silicate melt and it's ascend to the surface. The observed regular patterns, tectonic joints and faults in the intrusive rocks are also the reflection of the two fault systems and they don?t accident.

   General:
     The Neogene?s porphyry diorite, east of rabor a northeast-southwest trend, are injected into Oligocene- Miocene volcano- sedimentary rocks consist of upper-red formation, pyroclastics, red siltstone, conglomerate and grayish color limestone. Structurally the diorites were outcropped between two major running right-lateral fault systems of Dehshir-Baft and Sardiuyeh. The action of these two faults led to guide to silicate melt and ascend them to the surface. The observed regular patterns, tectonic joints and faults in the intrusive rocks, are also the reflection of the two fault systems and they aren?t accidentally.
