Evolution and Mineralization of the Arabian-Nubian Shield: by Ahmad M. S. Al-Shanti

By Ahmad M. S. Al-Shanti

Evolution and Mineralization of the Arabian-Nubian safeguard, quantity 2 files the lawsuits of a Symposium at the Arabian-Nubian defend.
This booklet is split into 5 major subject matters — constitution and evolution; metallogenesis; plutonic rocks; metamorphic rocks; and ophiolites. In those themes, this article particularly discusses the Precambrian tectonics of North-East Africa; cratonic ore provinces separated by way of continental flow; peralkaline granite within the western a part of the Arabian protect; and Semail ophiolite and linked mammoth sulfide deposits. the higher Proterozoic volcanic task within the northern Arabian defend; ore controls on the Mahd adh Dhahab gold mine; shallow intrusive granites from Egypt and their relation to mineralization; and chromites from the Al'Ays and Semail complicated also are deliberated.
This textual content is an efficient reference for college kids and contributors drawn to the publicity of Precambrian crystalline rocks at the borders of the crimson Sea.
