Abstract

Kampung Awah and Tasik Kenyir are geologically located in East Malaya Blocks. These block is also known as western margin of Indochina terrane. Apart from sedimentary formations, East Malaya Blocks is also dominated by plutonic and volcanic rocks of mafic to rhyolitic compositions. Petrography and geochemical data suggest that Kampung Awah and Tasik Kenyir are one of locations which consists of volcanic rocks of generally basaltic to basaltic andesite compositions. Volcanic rocks from both area consists of plagioclcase, clinopyroxene, orthpyroxene as main mineral constituents with minor occurrences of hornblende. Geochemical data also indicate that volcanic rocks from both area were formed during subduction of the Paleo-Tethys oceanic underneath the East Malaya Block or Indochina terrane. Most of the samples are metaluminous which indicate the volcanics are derived from igneous origin. This paper will contribute new geochemical data of mafic volcanics from Kampung Awah and Tasik Kenyir with the support of petrographic and field evidence to deduce the magma evolution and the tectonic setting.
