The Dharwar Craton, one of the parts of the Indian shield, is estimated to be 3 billion years old -- one of the oldest continental fragments in the world. This book surveys the Precambrian geology of peninsular India and, to some extent, the Himalayas. The authors discuss the similarities and differences between the crustal blocks of the shield and incorporate details concerning geochemistry.

Precambrian - Precambrian - Precambrian geology: By international agreement, Precambrian time is divided into the Archean Eon (occurring between roughly billion years ago and billion years ago) and Proterozoic Eon (occurring between billion and million years ago).

After the Precambrian, geologic time intervals are commonly subdivided on the basis of the fossil record. The very low-grade metamorphic sequence of volcano-sedimentary rocks, sandwiched between the platform sediments of the Vindhyan Supergroup to the east and the Banded Gneissic Complex (BGC) to the west, in the eastern fringe of the Aravalli-Delhi orogenic belt, has remained a stratigraphic enigma in the Precambrian geology of Rajasthan.

The region has experienced polyphase. Considered as the paradise of Indian geology, the region is central to the understanding of geology of the Precambrian Indian Shield and Phanerozoic cover successions.

The book is also amongst the most illustrative treatise on the geology of a region published in recent years. Rajasthan is endowed with a continuous geological sequence of rocks from the oldest Archaean Metamorphic, represented by Bhilwara Supergroup (> m.

y.) to sub-recent alluvium & wind blown sand. The geological sequence of the state is highly varied and complex, revealing the co-existence of the most ancient rocks of the Pre-Cambrian age and the most recent alluvium as well as windblown.

Abstract. The Champaner Group, earlier designated as the Champaner Series, constitutes the youngest unit of the Aravalli Supergroup. It consists of a sequence of meta-subgreywacke, sandy phyllite, graphite schist, protoquartzite, polymictic meta-conglomerate, dolomitic limestone and manganiferous phyllite (Gupta et al.

in Mem Geol Surv India –, The Aravalli Mountain Range is a northeast-southwest trending orogenic belt in the northwest part of India and is part of the Indian Shield that was formed from a series of cratonic collisions. The Aravalli Mountains consist of the Aravalli and Delhi fold belts, and are collectively known as the Aravalli-Delhi orogenic belt.

The whole mountain range is about km long. Rajasthan forms north-western part of the Indian Shield. The State exposes a variety of litho logical and tectonic units ranging in age from Archaean to Recent times.

This Memoir provides a comprehensive review of the Precambrian basins of the four Archaean nuclei of India (Dharwar, Bastar, Singhbhum and Aravalli-Bundelkhand), encompassing descriptions of the time–space distribution of sedimentary–volcanic successions, the interrelationship between tectonics and sedimentation, and basin histories.

The southern margin of the Aravalli Mountain Belt (AMB) is known to have undergone polyphase deformation during the Mesoproterozoic. The Lunavada Group of rocks, which is an important constituent of the southern parts of AMB, reveals three episodes of deformation; D1,D 2 and D3. In this paper, interpretations based on petrographic studies of schists and quartzites of the region are presented.

Structural Setting The Area has been subjected to three episodes of deformations i.e. AF 1, AF 2 and AF 3. K-T magmatism and sedimentary basin development in western Rajasthan were considered pre-outburst plume activity and included (1) the formation of the Mundwara and Sarnu igneous complexes, dated at ± Ma (Basu et al., ); (2) a event involving Pb loss from the Delhi-Aravalli region, dated at ca.

9 The Precambrian geologic history of peninsular India covers nearly billion years of time. The Peninsula 10 is an assembly of five different cratonic nuclei known as the Aravall-Bundelkhand, Eastern Dharwar, Western 11 Dharwar, Bastar and Singhbhum cratons along with the Southern Granulite Province.

Final amalgamation of these.Proterozoic age of the Aravalli Supergroup is confirmed by the age of Darwal granite (Rb-Sr isochron age of ±80 Ma) (Choudhary et al., ) which intrudes both BGC and Aravalli Supergroup.

Recent work however, shows the age of Aravalli Supergroup to be around Ga based on Pb-Pb age of galena from the volcanic.The range rose in a Precambrian event called the Aravalli - Delhi Orogen.

The Aravalli Range is a northeast-southwest trending orogenic belt that is located in the northwestern part of Indian Peninsula. It is part of the Indian Shield that was formed from a series of cratonic collisions.
