Evolution and Mineralization of the Arabian-Nubian Shield by Ahmed M. Shanti (Author) ISBN Format: Hardcover. The geologic environments include Precambrian crystalline basement (Late Proterozoic) of Arabian Nubian Shield (ANS) that is composed of igneous and metamorphic rocks at south-western part.

exposures of the Western Ethiopian Shield are positioned within the juvenile Neoproterozoic crust of the Arabian Nubian Shield and the older, predominately gneissic Mozambique Belt (Woldemichael et al. ). The age and origin of the Western Ethiopian Shield are still largely unidentified. The aim of this paper is to constrain the age and. This richly illustrated book offers a concise overview of the geology of Egypt in the context of the geology of the Arab Region and Northeast Africa. An introductory chapter on history of geological research in Egypt sheds much light on the stages before and after the establishment of Egyptian Geological Survey (the second oldest geological.

The western part is largely highlands made up of Pre-Cambrian basement and Cenozoic volcanic caps, while the eastern part is lowland of sedimentary cover and divided into structural arches and basins. Figure 3 shows four regional cross sections depicting typical stratigraphy and structural setup of sedimentary basins in onshore Yemen. The geology of Egypt includes rocks from Archaean - early Proterozoic times onwards. These oldest rocks are found as inliers in Egypt’s Western contrast, the rocks of the Eastern Desert are largely late Proterozoic in age. Throughout the country this older basement is overlain by Palaeozoic sedimentary rocks. Cretaceous rocks occur commonly whilst sediments indicative of repeated.

This is confirmed by geochemical analyses of volcanic rocks of the Siham Group (Agar, ). Some of the post-tectonic granites (ca. Ma) which intrude diorites and metamorphic rocks of the Precambrian Hulayfah Group in the western part of the Arabian Shield are peralkaline; and Hadb-Aldyaheen riebeckite granite and granite porphyry ring complex and the Jabal Sayid riebeckite granite are typical examples.

Arabian-Nubian Shield The Arabian-Nubian Shield (ANS) is an exposure of Precambrian crystalline rocks on the flanks of the Red Sea. The crystalline rocks are mostly Neoproterozoic in age. Geographically - and from north to south - the ANS includes the nations of Israel, Jordan.

This book discusses the geological investigations of the tectonic evolution, structure, and metallogenesis of the Arabian–Nubian Shield.

Organized into four parts encompassing 15 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the study of the geology of the western Saudi Arabia. This text then examines the Pan-African basement, which has Price: $ The Egyptian basement is a part of the Arabian-Nubian shield which in turn constitutes a significant portion of the East African Orogeny (EAO).

evolution of the Nubian Shield. Evolution of the Nubian Shield in Egypt The basement rocks of the Eastern Desert of Egypt constitute the Nubian Shield that has formed a con-tinuous part with the Arabian Shield in the Arabian Peninsula before the opening of the Red Sea.

It is generally accepted that the basement of the Nubian Shield was. The Eastern Desert is a part of the Arabian Nubian Shield (Shield is a collage of Neoproterozoic tectonostratigraphic terrains linked to ophiolite-decorated sutures).

This desert is generally a huge and rough mountainous terrain composed of Precambrian basement (igneous and metamorphic) rocks. This book is divided into five main topics — structure and evolution; metallogenesis; plutonic rocks; metamorphic rocks; and ophiolites. In these topics, this text specifically discusses the Precambrian tectonics of North-East Africa; cratonic ore provinces separated by continental drift; peralkaline granite in the western part of the Arabian Shield; and Semail ophiolite and associated massive sulfide deposits.

The basement rocks of Eritrea are part of the Arabian Nubian Shield (ANS) which are exposed in north east Africa (Egypt, Sudan, Eritrea, and Ethiopia) and in Saudi Arabia, northern and northwest- ern parts of Yemen and part of the western Middle East.

The shield is believed to repre- sent a mega suture between East and West Gondwana. Dismembered and low-grade metamorphosed occurrences of mafic extrusive and intrusive and minor ultramafic rocks, grouped as the Arid unit, similar to those of the Arabian Nubian Shield (ANS), are reported here for the first time in the westernmost part of the Nuba Mountains, southeastern Sudan.

Schematic reconstruction of the accretionary evolution of the Arabian Plate. By Ma, the Asir, Hijaz and Midyan terranes formed the western part of the Arabian Shield. Between about and Ma the Afif terrane collided with the western Shield along the Nabitah Suture.

These rocks constitute the southernmost part of the West Ethiopian Precambrian Greenstone Belt, a southern extension of the Arabian-Nubian Shield, known for many gold deposits, ancient and modern.The lithosphere of the Arabian–Nubian shield was mainly formed during an interval of about million years near the end of the Proterozoic aeon.
