Petrology and Geochemistry of the Mafic Dyke Rocks from Precambrian Almora Crystallines of Kumaun Lesser Himalaya Article (PDF Available) in Journal of the Geological Society of India 76(5) The geology of western Montana is dominated by Cenozoic episodes of basin development and deformation (resulting in a fold-thrust belt and foreland basin*), in response to subduction of the Pacific plate along the western continental margin (figure 3; Garland, ; Fuentes et al., ).The geological framework has a foundation in the Archean and Proterozoic development of the North American.

Carbonatites are of considerable economic and scientific interest; the economic interest is explained by their geochemical enrichment in a range of elements, such as the rare earth elements (REEs), Nb, Ba, Sr, Ta, Th, U, V, F, P, and Zr (e.g., Mariano, ; Pell, ; Rankin, ).This enrichment may reach ore grade for certain elements in some carbonatites, and carbonatite-associated.

Journal: South African Journal of Geology. Many coastal diamonds in Namibia are thought to have been carried by the Orange River over distances of as much as miles from their source area.

The principal host for diamonds are rocks formed in the earth's mantle that are known as eclogite and peridotite that are carried to the earth's surface in magmas known as kimberlit e and lamproite. The Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) rover Curiosity landed in Aeolis Palus on the northwestern plains of Gale crater, Mars in August and has been actively exploring its surface for more than six Earth years.

The oldest commercial production is from mid to Late Neoproterozoic successions. Precambrian source rocks are closely related to the evolution of life and the Earth's atmosphere.

Monazite is a light rare earth element (REE) phosphate that can be used as a U–Th–Pb geochronometer as well as an Sm–Nd isotopic tracer for crustal growth [12,13,14].There is an important difference in the occurrence of igneous monazite and zircon: Monazite is restricted to low-Ca silicic rocks, whereas zircon is abundant in various silicic rock types [15,16,17].Author: Keita Itano, Kenta Ueki, Tsuyoshi Iizuka, Tatsu Kuwatani.
