This book provides a detailed description of Nigeria’s geology and mineral . The book is divided into three parts.

This book provides a detailed description of Nigeria’s geology and mineral resources with the aim of promoting sustainable economic development of Nigeria’s mineral and petroleum sectors. Part 1 discusses the geology of the crystalline rocks and their regional distribution while the sedimentary basins constitute the subject of Part 2. Part 3 presents the mineral resources of Nigeria, their geological environment, mode of occurrence, localities and where possible their estimated reserves.

The geology of Nigeria formed beginning in the Archean and Proterozoic eons of the Precambrian. The country forms the Nigerian Province and more than half of its surface is igneous and metamorphic crystalline basement rock from the Precambrian. Between . billion and 500 million years ago, Nigeria was affected by three major orogeny mountain-building events and related igneous intrusions.

Mineral resources are materials of economic interest found in or on the . Confirmed reserves in 3 prospects in the East-Central part are put at five million tonnes waiting for depositors to make a profit from it.

Mineral resources are materials of economic interest found in or on the earth’s surface in such quantity, quality, and form, which can be be used to improve the economy. In general, the Nigerian economy is partial towards the study of minerals, especially petroleum. One of the mineral resources in Nigeria that is exploited on a small scale is gold. Notwithstanding its price, the gold exploration is not very dominant and can be found only in such states as Oyo, Sokoto, Kebbi, Zamfara, Niger, Kwara, Ebonyi, Kaduna, Edo, Abuja, and Bauchi.

2 CHAPTER TWO GEOLOGY OF NIGERIA . ROCK TYPES The three major rock types - igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary - abound in Nigeria. Igneous and metamorphic rocks constitute the Precambrian basement complex which is the oldest, crystalline, solid physical foundation of the country. Sedimentary rocks fill up the basins which are vast depressions between basement landmass. The Basement Complex and the sedimentary basins are equally dispersed in Nigeria, with basement most extensive in 3 Northern Nigeria; less so in the south-western part of the country; and least along the eastern margin.
