Jenderal Sudirman No. 6, Gorontalo. Tel: (+62) ABSTRACT Sumalata area locates in North Gorontalo or northern coast North Arm Sulawesi. This area is rich in natural resources. One those is a gold mine, which is managed by society. The area is covered by Miocene to Pliocene esite tuffs. Andesitic rocks are members Diorite Boliohuto Formation. This study was conducted to determine petrogenesis esitic rocks. The research method used is field observations. The samples were analyzed by petrographic analysis. Field observations shows esitic rocks consisted esite quartz esite. Most the mineral are presence as opaque minerals such as pyrite chalcopyrite. Petrographic analyses 20 samples indicte four types rocks namely esite, trachyte, latite quartz latite. Those rocks are formed by alkaline-intermediate magma. The differences these rocks are their compositions plagioclase, K-feldspar quartz. In addition, the secondary minerals are chlorite, sericite, carbonates opaque minerals. The presence minerals supposedly due to the alteration primary minerals such as pyroxene plagioclase. This can occur if there is a process alteration metal mineralization.

INTRODUCTION Sumalata area located in North Gorontalo district, Gorontalo Province, or geologically lane in the East South part North Arm Sulawesi [2]. located in North Arm Sulawesi. The regional Based on the regional geologi [7] geologic setting study area can be divided Lokodidi into conglomerate, three groups rocks in general; Formation (TQls) composed sstone, conglomeratic sedimentary rock, volcanic rock, intrusive sstone, black shale tuffaceous sstone rock groups [1].

RESULTS dikes are found [Figure 5]. The morphology the study area is This study focused on the dioritic rocks, in particular research on Diorite Boliohuto (Tmbo) composed diorite granodiorite, Wobudu Breccia (Tpwv) are also composed intermediate to alkaline lavas. Petrographic observations are necessary to distinguish mineralogy dioritic rocks in Sumalata area. 2. METHOD The method used in this study is a megascopic rocks descripting in the field with the emphasis on petrographic observations. The geological field observation was carried out characterized by hills located at the foot Mohenti Mountain, East Sumalata District. Most the areas are accessible by foot. The rocks covered this area are intermediate to alkaline igneous rocks. In general, the minerals are altered, such as pyrite, chalcopyrite, malachite, hematite. Calcite quartz veins are found in several places. The rock types are esite esite porphyry. These rocks are underlain by Miocene tuff volcanic rocks. Andesite tuff breccia is a member Wobudu formation. by taking a fresh rock samples with h 38

At Station PHP 04 the mineral size is <10μm-599μm, has subhedral to anhedral form, hypocrystalline porphyritic texture, phanero in-equigranular.

Latite samples observed in station C.51 has brownish to black color, mineral size ranges <10µm-1200µm, subhedral to anhedral form, subhedral texture. The mineral composes plagioclase pyroxene. The rock alteration is about 30% to form secondary mineral consisting carbonates, epidote, chlorite, sericite, clays, opaque minerals. 4. DISCUSSION Petrogenesis esitic rocks in study area can be divided into two types (i.e phaneritic igneous volcanic rocks). Both rock types are distinguished by its formation. Andesite is the dominant rock cropping out in this study area. Generally it has phanero-porphyritic texture, is formed as a hypobisal body where plagioclase as its phenocryst within pyroxene matrix. These rocks contain secondary minerals such as chlorite, sericite opaque minerals (metals). These minerals are thought to be present due to interaction remaining solution to alter plagioclase pyroxene into chlorite sericite. Meanwhile, opaque minerals Quartz latite samples observed in station observed macroscopically in the form pyrite H1.01 are strongly altered, transparent to brown magnetite. The alteration plagioclase color, mineral size ranges <10μm-646,4μm, pyroxene into chlorite sericite resulting in subhedral to anhedral, porphyritic texture, increasing composition quartz in the rock. dominated by alkali feldspar mineral glass. Furthermore in several places exposes latite Secondary minerals consist quartz, alunite, quartz latite. Meanwhile, trachyte formed from pyrophyllite, clays, opaque minerals. porphyro-aphanitic molten rock is dominantly composed by K-feldspar. Trachyte, 40
