The Imgye hornblendites occur as intrusive sills or dykes within the mylonite zone developed along the contact boundary between Precambrian Jungbongsan granite and Cambrian Jangsan quartzite or Myobong slate formations. The hornlendites belong to the subalkaline and tholeiitic series. In tectonomagmatic discrimination diagrams such as $TiO_2-K_2O-P_2O_5$, 2Nb-Zr/4-Y and $TiO_2-10MnO-10P_2O_5$, the hornblendites are classified into continental- and island-arc tholeiites. The hornblendites show fractionated REE patterns with $(La/Yb)_{CN}$ ranging from 3.73-4.56. In incompatible element abundance variations, the hornblendites show distinctive positive and negative anomalies for Rb and Nb, respectively, and unfractionated patterns of immobile incompatible elements such as Y and Yb. The REE patterns of the hornblendites are also similar to those of typical continental back-arc tholeiites and those of the Precambrian Okbang amphibolites in the Socheon-meon, Bonghwa-gun. Accoiding to geochemical characteristics above-mentioned, the hornblendites seem to have been formed from tholeiitic magmas of depleted upper mantle source, contaminated by crustal material en route to continental back-arc basin.
