The granite of the Song Ma block mainly consists of two types of granite: biotite granite and hornblende-biotite granite. Biotite granites have the percent of plagioclase (35– 45%), K-feldspar (25–35%), quartz (~20%) and biotite (~10%). Biotite-hornblende granite with the content of plagioclase (40–50%), Kfeldspar (10–15%), hornblende (5–10%) and biotite (5%). Zircon crystals were selected from the granite of Song Ma block are V0741, V0856 and V1006 samples with the LA-ICPMS U-Pb analyses gave concordant ages concentrated at 257±4Ma, 262±3Ma and 241±6Ma (weighted mean). Those ages are older than the results of the previous research. The mineral assemblages and geochemical characteristics show the typical of I-type granites. The results of Hf isotope composition analysis give the value of εHf(t) from +7.3 to +13.9, which is proven the sources of the granite Song Ma block similar to the granite of Phan Si Pan zone, NW Viet Nam during the period from late Permian to early Triassic.
