Abstract:
We report secondary ion mass spectrometry measurements of volatile (H2O, F, P, S, Cl) abundances in lower-crustal cumulate minerals from the Kohistan paleo-arc (NW Pakistan), and determine H2O abundances of melts from which the cumulates crystallized. Pyroxenes retained magmatic H2O abundances and record damp (less than 1% wt.% H2O) to hydrous (up to 10 wt.% H2O) primitive melts. Subsequent crystal fractionation led to formation of super-hydrous melts with approximately 12–20 wt.% H2O, predicted petrologically yet virtually absent from the melt inclusion record. Porphyry copper deposits are likely a natural eventuality of fluid exsolution from super-hydrous melts, corroborating a growing body of evidence.
