Regional Geology

This information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This data will improve over time as more accurate maps and data sets are added.

Mesoproterozoic1000 - 1600 MaMesoproterozoic metamorphic and undivided crystalline: orthogneiss

Metamorphic and undivided crystalline: orthogneiss

Mesoproterozoic1000 - 1600 MaMesoproterozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.

Mesoproterozoic1000 - 1600 MaInterlayered amphibolite and granitic, charnockitic, mangeritic, or syenitic gneiss

Major:: {amphibolite},Minor:: {gneiss}

Interlayered amphibolite and granitic, charnockitic, mangeritic, or syenitic gneiss.
