Geochronological research of the granite sample MK-4. (a) Position photo of the biotite monzonitic granite sample in a field Quarry of east Mengku. (b) Granitic intrusion (lower left) and its fossil weathering were cleavaged. (c) The red detrital material of terrigenous origin, Huakaizuo Formation in Jurassic, was normal gradational. (d) Granitic intrusions are selected as sample. (e) The micro characteristics of MK-4 and the zircon setting are shown. The zircon grains are associated with quartz and plagioclase and have been degraded by some weathering process, CPL, (f) Magmatic zircon is shown by the SEM cathodoluminescence (CL) image. The circled area is deduced to form during the crystallization of granite and is just the measured area by laser-ICPMS. (g) Zircon La-ICPMs U-Pb dating figure, and the average age is about 245 Ma.
