geochemistry dene volcanic units and demonstrate that rocks from Chilcayoc Grande, Chilcayoc Chico 2,
Jenchana, Sucna 1 and Chilcayoc Chico 1 represent the most recent volcanic activity. The main trend samples,
each form a co-magmatic group resulting in sub-parallel trends in many variations diagrams. It is
furthermore shown that these trends point towards calculated mixing lines relating the individual units
through a binary mixing process, thus indicating a two stage evolution. In the case of Jenchana, Sucna 1 and
Chilcayoc Chico 1, the samples dene positive correlation trends in the Sr vs. Rb diagram that can be
extrapolated back towards origo indicating nearly perfect incompatibility of Sr and Rb. This together with
generally high Sr/Y (50105) and low Y content (b 16 ppm) suggest lack of plagioclase fractionation and
residual garnet in the source and is taken as evidence for relatively high pressure (lower crustal) origin of the
mixing event. The amphibole bearing samples form individual co-magmatic groups that cannot be related to
each other. This means that the amphibole bearing samples originates from different magmas. The lavas of
the Ninamama group are comparable in age to the main trend samples but different in petrography and
composition, why the two compositional different magmas must have existed within a small conned area
within a limited time span.

The volcanic units can be distinguished and characterized by their
trace element composition since most volcanic units form discrete
groups with a relatively limited trace element variation. The
geochemical characteristics of the volcanic units have been summar-

Generally Y do not correlate with Rb. Main trend samples (Chilcayoc Grande, Chilcayoc Chico 2, Jenchana, Sucna 1 and Chilcayoc Chico 1) dene sub-parallel trends best illustrated in
the Sr, Ba, La and Y vs. Rb plots. It is furthermore noted that Sr behaves incompatibly within the volcanic units of the main trend samples. This is illustrated in Fig. 6e where the
primary arrow denotes the overall decrease of Sr with increasing Rb. Arrows marked secondary illustrates the contrasting positive correlation of Sr and Rb for the main trend
samples. The correlation trends of the main trend samples can be extrapolated back towards (0,0) as illustrated by the stippled arrow which indicates that Sr behave incompatibly
within the main trend samples. See text for further discussion.

7.1. Fractional crystallization

Fractional crystallization is evaluated through geochemical model-

ling based on petrographic observations. The Andagua lavas often are
aphyric and quantitative modelling therefore has to be done with a
ctional combination of minerals as well as mineral compositions.
Fractional crystallization models for major element variation assuming a
plagioclase dominated fractionate (since plagioclase is the main mineral
for Sr, and the Sr concentration drop from around 1300 ppm to around
700 ppm from the least evolved to most evolved sample) can to some
extend explain the overall variation of the major elements, but however,
fail to explain the observed variation of other trace elements. During
fractional crystallization the ratio between two very incompatible
elements will not change drastically and samples related through
fractional crystallization should dene an approximately horizontal line
if plotted against a fractionation index. This is however not the case as
shown in Fig. 8a, where the K/Rb ratio drops with increasing Rb
concentration. Fractionation of alkali feldspar and to some extent
amphibole could also give the observed trend. In Andean rocks, alkali
feldspar is normally crystallizing at higher SiO2 than seen in the Andagua Fig. 9. Ni vs. Rb. The straight line is a mixing line between the least evolved main trend
sample and through the least evolved sample of each unit of the main trend samples.
