Abstract (in english)
   In the Bohemian massif, the Krušné hory-Erzgebirge batholith is a composite granite body with associated Sn-W mineralization. In the better exposed western part of the batholith, the Western pluton crops out in the Slavkovský les and near Karlovy Vary as a Karlovy Vary pluton which is divided into the older, intermediate, transitional and younger intrusive granite types. From new geochemical data it is apparent that the individual intrusive types form part of a co-magmatic sequence. In this magmatic sequence the younger intrusions have more evolved compositions and are extensively altered by late to postmagmatic fluids. The alteration is presented by the sub-solidus growth of muscovite and by albitization and sericitization of feldspars. This alteration and its extent is distinct from a more progressive greisenization which produced the economic Sn-W deposits of this region
