Geology and Structural Analysis of Foliation Planes of by Umar Sambo Umar

By Umar Sambo Umar

Bachelor Thesis from the yr 2011 within the topic Geography / Earth technological know-how - Geology, Mineralogy, Soil technology, grade: A, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa collage (FACULTY OF SCIENCE), direction: GEOLOGY, language: English, summary: This paintings produces a few important geologic info at the geology and structural research of rocks mapped round Kanwara, Dass neighborhood executive region of Bauchi country. The mapped zone is found among longitude N10001’09” and N1O000’09”and range E9032’42” and E9031’26”. publicity of rocks within the quarter have been quite often excessive point and medium point outcrops with just a couple of low point outcrops, the excessive point outcrops have been conically formed with top ranging among 400m to 700m above sea point whereas the inselberg used to be approximately 900m. The foremost rock varieties within the region have been granite gneiss, biotite granite and migmatite, lower than skinny part, minerals have been pointed out through their respective optical homes below either airplane polarized mild and pass polarized mild, the main minerals linked to the rocks have been; biotite, quartz, feldspars, (orthoclase & plagioclase), muscovite and microcline. in line with box observations, the geologic constructions came across at the rocks comprise; joints, foliations, minor folds, ghost schist, dykes and veins. The joints point out the overlaying impression of the pan African orogeny at the older granites (trending NW-SE). the form of the girdle from the structural research carried out exhibits that the rocks of the mapped region have been subjected to medium grade metamorphism.
