Marziyan granitic pluton is one of the numerous intrusive bodies in Sanandaj-Sirjan structural zone. The pluton is composed of locogranite, granite and granodiorite and its contact metamorphic rocks are consisting of cordierite and andalusite schist. Tourmaline and garnet bearing locogranite, aplite, pegmatite, mylonite and injected migmatite are exposed in the metamorphic halo. The major minerals include quartz, plagioclase, K-feldspar, biotite as well as muscovite, tourmaline and garnet. Structural studies indicate the presence of shear zones, especially in the southeastern parts with NNW-SSE trend. Four types of microstructures are present in the region 1) magmatic microstructures, 2) high temperature solid state microstructure, 3) low temperature solid state microstructure and 4) sub-mylonitic and mylonitic microstructure. All rocks of the region have been subjected to shear deformation which led the formation of S-C foliations and other sense of shear markers. The presence of asymmetric porphyroclasts and porphyroblast, biotite and feldspar kink bands, mica-fish mica and andalusite and domino and boudinaged structures of feldspar and tourmaline are evidences of ductile deformation in a contractional and dextral shear regime. All evidences indicate that high temperature solid state zones in greenschist facies to lower amphibolite conditions (300-500°C) have formed simultaneously with emplacement of granitic bodies. Low temperature solid state, sub-mylonitic and mylonitic zones developed following the emplacement of granitic bodies.
