The Origin of the Granitic Sheets and Veins in the Loch Coire Migmatites, Scotland

Summary: Most of the granitic sheets and veins in the Loch Coire migmatite complex do not have chemical compositions in accordance with a formation by local anatexis. Regional metasomatism by fluids from outside the exposed confines of the complex was an important factor in the development of the sheets and veins, although there was probably some overlap with magmatic conditions.
