Origin and metamorphic evolution of magnesite-talc and adjacent rocks near Gemerská Poloma, Slovak Republic
Magnesite and talc deposit Gemerská Poloma is located in Early Palaeozoic rocks of the Gemericum, Slovakia. It experienced both Variscan and Alpine greenschist-facies regional metamorphism and was overprinted by contact metamorphism connected with the intrusion of a Permian granite. As the origin of talc in Mg-carbonate rocks from this locality is interpreted as a result of either regional or contact metamorphism, relation of talc formation to these two processes is critically discussed. The estimated P-T conditions (6-7 kbar at 400 ºC), reached during Alpine metamorphism, were obtained from the Permian metagranite that was not affected by the Variscan metamorphic event. The calculated P-T conditions were verified using various thermobarometers and pseudosections for biotite- and garnet-bearing assemblages in the metagranite.
