American Mineralogist, Volume 88, pages 316–329, 2003 0003-004X/03/0203–316$05.00 316 INTRODUCTION Isotopic studies published during the last decade have em- phasized multiple sources for rhyolite magma in the mantle, and the lower and upper crust (Hildreth et al. 1991; Riciputi et al. 1995). Despite this recognition that rhyolite typically evolves through open-system processes involving crustal assimilation, it remains clear that many silicic systems have experienced profound episodes of crystal fractionation. This fractionation is manifested through very

This study is concerned solely with alkali feldspar, because alkali feldspar is the dominant phase in peralkalic quartz tra- chyte and rhyolite and exerts the greatest influence over the bulk partition coefficient for most trace elements during frac- tional crystallization (Mahood and Stimac 1990; Nicholls and Carmichael 1969; Roux and Varet 1975). In this paper, new empirical equations for the partitioning of several

-X-ray transparency makes it an ideal candidate for medical and analytical applications. For these reasons, Be is on the “Strategic and Critical Materials” list of the U.S. Department of Defense and of the European Union ( Thomason et al. 2013 ). The Miocene rhyolite of the Spor Mountain Formation in western Utah ( Lindsey 1977 , 1982 ; Christiansen et al. 1984 ) hosts one of the largest beryllium deposits in the world and was responsible for producing 85% of the beryllium mined worldwide in 2010 ( Boland 2012 ). Materion Brush Beryllium and Composites owns and operates the mine

a magma, concomitant partitioning of Au from the melt into the MVP, egress and ascent of the MVP from the magma chamber, and precipitation of metals as physico-chemi- cal changes in the MVP decrease the solubility of Au (Holland 1972; Burnham 1979; Candela and Holland 1984; Gammons and Williams-Jones 1997; Hedenquist and Richards 1998). The efficiency with which Au will partition into the MVP from a melt is a function of the concentration of Au-complexing ligands * E-mail: Experimental determination of Au solubility in rhyolite melt and
