Abstract

With the exception of the westernmost part (Lugo Dome), where granitic plutonism becomes comparable to that in the Central Iberian Zone, magmatic activity in the West Asturian Leonese Zone (WALZ) is very scarce. For the rest, it is only represented by small plutons and stocks almost restricted to the axis of the Boal-Los Ancares metamorphic belt (Fig. 1), and by some scattered volcanic rocks of Precambrian and Lower Paleozoic age. Nevertheless, the importance of the WALZ in regard to granitic plutonism lies in the occurrence within this restricted area of almost all granite types present in the Hesperian massif.
