Abstract [en]

The Jokkmokk granitoid is exposed in a large plutonic massif northwest of Jokkmokk in northern Sweden. It is light grey to white, fine-grained, with megacrysts of feldspar and glomeroporphyritic hornblende and biotite. Small enclaves of mafic rocks and synplutonic mafic dykes are products of mingling with a coeval and possibly cogenetic mafic magma. The Jokkmokk granitoid was previously considered to belong to the c. 1.8 Ga Lina S-type intrusive suite, but the Jokkmokk granitoid has a unique calc-alkaline to alkali-calcic, metaluminous to weakly peraluminous, character with a moderate LREE enrichment and a flat HREE pattern, and a flat to slightly positive Eu-anomaly. U–Pb TIMS zircon dating of the Jokkmokk granitoid gives an age of 1883±15 Ma which is coeval with the emplacement of the Haparanda suite, but contrary to the Haparanda suite it displays a positive _Nd(t) value of 2.8, indicating a more juvenile Palaeoproterozoic character similar to the Jörn suite in the Skellefte district. This type of magma seems to be restricted to the palaeoboundary between the Archaean craton in the north and Palaeoproterozoic juvenile crust in the south. Spatial correlation with low angle, south dipping, WNW-trending shear zones and NNE-trending subvertical shear zones, highlight the possibility that this unique magma type is related to transtension in the overriding plate and partial melting in a sub-arc mantle wedge during NE-directed subduction processes related to the early stages of the Svecokarelian orogen. This type of setting has been advocated as the potentially most favourable tectonic setting for porphyry copper formation
