Apr 21, 2020 Karst regions offer a variety of natural resources such as freshwater and biodiversity, and many cultural resources. The World Karst Aquifer Map (WOKAM) is the first detailed and complete global geodatabase concerning the distribution of karstifiable rocks (carbonates and evaporites) representing potential karst aquifers. This study presents a

Mineral Resources Data System (MRDS) MRDS describes metallic and nonmetallic mineral resources throughout the world. Included are deposit name, location, commodity, and references. Some records include deposit description, geologic characteristics, production, reserves, and resources. It includes the original MRDS and MAS/MILS data.
The younger granite complexes in Nigeria are found mainly on the Jos Plateau, forming a distinc- tive group of intrusive and volcanic rocks that are bounded by ring dykes or ring faults. Other occur- rences approximate a north-south belt towards the middle Benue in the south where the ages are younger, and towards Niger Republic in the north ...
sediments, rocks or sand formation. The occurrence and distribution of this natural resource are restricted to some geological formations and structures called aquifers. An aquifer is explained as a subsurface formation which is capable of storing and transmitting water at a pace fast enough to provide sufficient quantity to wells (Fetter, 2007).

Basement
The major aquifers in Nigeria are Basement aquifers, Sedimentary basins, Volcanic plateau, and River alluvium. Basement aquifers consist of crystalline and coarse-grained rocks and argillaceous meta-sedimentary rocks. Generally have low yields. Thickness varies from 10 to 25 m with water table depth varying from about 5 to 15 m.
The distribution of elements commonly associated with igneous or crystalline rocks indicate three possible crystalline rock source areas for detrital minerals in sandstone of the Salt Wash member. These areas are the Meeker-Craig area of Colorado, an area just south of the so-called Four Corners in Arizona and New
Feb 24, 2021 The position of Nigerias highest point has been marked. It is the 2,419 m high Chappal Waddi. The southern Atlantic coast is bordered by mangrove forests and swamps. Lagos, the capital of Nigeria, is located on the Atlantic coast of the country. The Niger and the Benue Rivers showed on the map are the major rivers of Nigeria.
Sep 26, 2021 Aeromagnetic and vertical electrical sounding around Ijano, southwestern Nigeria, was investigated for groundwater potential. Aeromagnetic dataset and vertical electrical sounding were acquired and used to investigate the study area. Oasis Montaj, Microsoft Excel and Arc GIS were used to present the results in maps, images and profiles. In order to map out the

Jan 27, 2021 Rock salt is one of the highest in demand mineral resources in Nigeria. The rock salt is used in the production of caustic soda, table salt, chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, and many others. It should be known that about 1.5million tonnes of rock salt are being deposited in
The book is divided into three parts. 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 takes the mineral resources of Nigeria one on one, their geological environment, mode of occurrence, localities and where possible the reserves estimation.
Studies of structural and hydrogeomorphological units (HGU) that are indicators of groundwater occurrence were carried out across an area extent of more than 700 km 2 within the hard rock terrain of southwestern Nigeria. These studies integrated geological remote sensing techniques (RST) and geographical information system (GIS) methods to generate thematic maps that
groundwater exploration. Air borne magnetic data are processed and interpreted to portray the occurrence of structures in rocks which are crucial to the occurrence and distribution of groundwater in rocks (Oni et.al, 2020). The study area forms part of the Pankshin Sheet 190 NE, North Central Nigeria. It is precisely sited

To aid in their study of the earth, geologists group rocks into three categories based on their origin igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. Each category is then further subdivided. About 27,000 years ago, lava flowed on top of the Navajo Sandstone, forming black ropey basalt in Snow Canyon State Park, Washington County.
