Long associated with metallic ore minerals and industrial minerals such as china clay, granitic rocks are, in some parts of the world, also sources of petroleum and potentially geothermal energy. They may also have value as fertilizers, given that two of their constituent minerals (K-feldspar and mica) have been identified as sources of K for plant nutrition. This paper reviews briefly different aspects of the economic geology of granites, culminating in a conceptual generic model intended to provoke discussion and lateral thought.
