    GEOLOGY AND STRUCTURE OF THE PRECAMBRIAN ROCKS IN IWOROKO, ARE AND AFAO AREA, SOUTHWESTERN NIGERIA. Olusiji Samuel Ayodele Department of Geology, Ekiti State University, P.M.B. Ado-Ekiti. Abstract: Geologic mapping of the study area revealed three dominant lithologic units namely: banded-gneiss, migmatite-gneiss and granite-gneiss File Size: 1MB. THE PRECAMBRIAN ERA The Precambrian Era. The name means: "before the Cambrian period." This old, but still common term was originally used to refer to the whole period of earth's history before the formation of the oldest rocks with recognizable fossils in them.

    Corresponds to “Precambrian X” rocks of older North American geology. Archean Eon: Ma. Hadean Eon: Ma. This term was intended originally to cover the time before any preserved rocks were deposited, although some zircon crystals from about Ma demonstrate the existence of crust in the Hadean Eon.

The Precambrian of the western part of the Granite Mountains, Wyoming, contains a metamorphic complex of gneisses, schists, and amphibolites that were derived through amphibolite-grade metamorphism from a sedimentary-volcanic sequence perhaps similar to that exposed in the southeastern Wind River Mountains.
