Evolution and Mineralization of the Arabian-Nubian Shield, Volume 2 documents the proceedings of a Symposium on the Arabian-Nubian Shield. This book is divided into five main topics — structure and evolution; metallogenesis; plutonic rocks; metamorphic rocks; and ophiolites. In these topics, this text specifically discusses the Precambrian tectonics of North-East Africa; cratonic ore provinces separated by continental drift; peralkaline granite in the western part of the Arabian Shield; and Semail ophiolite and associated massive sulfide deposits. The Upper Proterozoic volcanic activity in the northern Arabian Shield; ore controls at the Mahd adh Dhahab gold mine; shallow intrusive granites from Egypt and their relation to mineralization; and chromites from the Al'Ays and Semail complex are also deliberated. This text is a good reference for students and individuals interested in the exposure of Precambrian crystalline rocks on the borders of the Red Sea.
