A 1:12,000 geological map of the Macao Special Administrative Region has been produced through detailed field work supported by petrographic, mineralogical, geochronological and geochemical data obtained in previous studies. This map aims to represent a reliable tool to understand the geological evolution of the region and for management of the ter...
The new geological map of Macao represents an accurate and updated basis for understanding the geological evolution of this area of SE China. The map has relevance for the understanding of the Late Mesozoic magmatic evolution in the region, as it provides new insights into the distribution of magmatic rocks, at large scale (1:12,000), in this area...

Around 30 km2 of Jurassic to Cretaceous granitic rocks crop out in Macao (Southeast China). They are mostly calc- alkaline metaluminous to weakly peraluminous (A/CNK = 0.96-1.13) I-type biotite granites, representing variable degrees of magma evolution. Two distinct groups of granites can be recognized in Macao: porphyritic granites with LaN/YbN =...
