Mount Endut is a volcano located in the eastern part of Banten Province. Previous studies revealed that Mount Endut consists mainly of Quaternary volcanic and Tertiary plutonic igneous rocks respectively. This research focuses on the petrology of igneous rocks found in the southern region of Mount Endut in order to determine the type of igneous rocks, evolution of magma, and reconfirming historical geological process occurring in Mount Endut area. Petrographic analysis was performed on 11 samples and geochemical analysis was performed on 30 samples. Petrographic analysis revealed three types of igneous rocks, andesite porphyry, diorite porphyry, and dacite porphyry. Furthermore, geochemical analysis revealed that the igneous rocks in Mount Endut are comprised of basaltic andesite, andesite, dacite, basaltic trachy-andesite, trachy-andesite, and trachyte or trachydacite which originated from calc-alkaline magma series. The integration of petrographic and geochemical analysis supports the regional geological process where Mount Endut was formed either in an island arc or an active continental margin.
