Granitoids of the Osnitsky complex of Ukrainian Shield and the Brno Massif of Moravia: Comparison of structural-geological, petrophysical and petrogeochemical features of origin and petrological significance

Tolstoy M.I. and Shabatura O.V.

In this work we summarise basic results of our studies for the areas of tectono-magmatic activities in Moravia and at the western slope of Ukrainian Shield. The processes occurred there have resulted in development of volcuno-plutonic belts related to different blocks of the Earth’s crust. There is a likeness in the origin and characteristics of granitoids in different areas of tectonomagmatic activity of the Earth’s crust. This often forms a very close set of their composition and structural features reflecting the regularities of their origin. In spite of evident difference in the geological and structural positions of those granitoids, similari-ties and approaching trends in the changes of their structural, petrochemical and petrophysical characteristics should be marked. These characteristics can be taken as indicators of magmatism and mineralisations and can also serve as im-portant distinguishing features of the ore-monitoring structures.

Keywords: Brno Massif, Ukrainian Shield, origin of granitoids, petrophysics, tectomagnetic activities, granitoid massifs

Анотація. У роботі узагальнено основні результати досліджень зон тектономагматичних активізацій Моравії і західного схилу Українського щита. Ці процеси привели до розвитку вулкано-плутонічних поясів, пов’язаних з різними блоками земної кори, для яких зазначено подібність цілої низки речовинно-структурних рис гранітоїдів. Незважаючи на очевидну відмінність геолого-структурної позиції даних гранітоїдів, помітні схожі і зближені тре-нди структурних, петрохімічних і петрофізичних характеристик. Ці характеристики можуть слугувати індикаторами магматизму, оруденіння і важливими маркерами рудоконтролюючих структур.
