Graphs in B show the distribution of LREE from mafic rocks from Zone 1 through Zone 4 in Vermont. Zone 1 is characterized by enriched LREE. Samples from Zone 2 show a general pattern that is similar to Zone 1. SevernJ. samples, however, are less enriched in LREE compared to the HREE. Zone 3 samples are similar to Zone 1 and 2 in that they are high in REE but their patterns are generally much flatter than the other two.
