Abstract

Diabasic and gabbroic dikes intruding the lower Paleozoic Trinity Ophiolite in the Lovers Leap section, Klamath Mountains, California, display strong calc-alkalic petrological and geochemical features. These dikes, of Late Jurassic age (149??6Ma by K/Ar), are petrographically and geochemically similar to the contemporaneous calc-alkalic ultramafic magmatism well developed through the Klamath Mountains. They present negative Nb, Zr, and Ti anomalies typical of subduction-related magmatism and probably belong to a volcanic arc on an active continental margin. Values of ??Nd suggest that no old continental crust underlies the Klamath Mountains. -from Authors
