dc.description.abstractDioritic plutons in the Velfjord area of Nordland intrude calc-silicates and migmatitic pelites of the Helgeland Nappe Complex (HNC). The three largest plutons were emplaced in a zone of NNW-SSE regional strike rather than the more typical NE-SW strike. The plutons postdate Caledonian F2 structures; however, anatectic granites increase in abundance toward the plutons, which suggests emplacement and subsequent partial melting of the pelitic host rocks soon after peak metamorphism. The dioritic and granitic bodies were deformed with interstitial melt present; deformation continued during cooling to greenschist facies conditions. Structural position, style and timing of deformation, and assymetric zoning of the plutons are consistent with intrusion into a dilatant part of a regional sinistral shear zone.
