This paper is the result of a petrochemical study on the Jongam granite mass which intruded metasediments of Ogcheon zone, locating about 10km northwest from Miweon town, and the mass is $2.5km^2$ in area. In this study, the granite was petrographically analysed in such ways, modal analysis, myrmekite analysis, petrochemical study analysis and tectonic analysis of joint system. The findings are as follows: 1) The area of the granite distributed is a basin surrounded by metasediments. The granite is magma origin. 2) The major mineral composition of the granite are quartz, plagioclase, microcline orthoclase and biotite, and accessaries are muscovite, sericite, magnetite, zircon and sphene. 3) In triangles of $Qu-K{\cdot}fp-PI$, Bi-Or-Hb+Mt and Qu-Ab-Or, the data point areas are similar to those of the NW zone of D.S. Lee (1971) 4) The granite mass can be divided into three granites; quartz monzonite, granodiorite and biotite granite, by petrological aspect in detail. 5) It shows inverse ratio of content between quartz and plagioclase. 6) The myrmekite-texture of the granite are stem type and dominating in northern part. 7) In the tectonic analysis of joint, the strikes are almost constant in direction, N-S direction of dominant joints 8) The geological age of the granites estimated to be Jurassic in age. 9) According to the mineralogical distribution and joint systen, the intrusion direction of the granite magma was infered as from north to south.
