Landslide Susceptibility Mapping of Oke Agbona Hill (okemesi) Using Gis, Ekiti State

ABSTRACTͦMany areas are exposed to different types of natural hazards including landslides, which can lead to loss of lives, injury to people, damage to property and disruption of economic activities. This project assessed the landslide susceptibility and quantifies the hazard and risk related to landslides in Okemesi, southwest, Nigeria using remote sensing imageries and geographic information system (GIS). The result revealed that slope, elevation, aspect, distance from road can influe...

GEOCHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS WITH RESPECT TO GOLD MINERALIZATION OF BENI/KAFIN-KORO AREA (PART OF SHEET 165, BISHINI SW), NORTH-CENTRAL, NIGERIA

A total of 21 samples were analyzed in the laboratory, Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectrum (ICP-AES) was employed in the whole rock analysis for oxides, total sulphide (TOS), total carbon (TOC) and loss on ignition (LOI), while Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS) was employed in the analysis for trace metals including gold, and rare earth elements (REE) that were either associated with or served as pathfinder for gold. Statistical anal...

EVALUATION OF LIMESTONE TEXTURAL AND GEOCHEMICAL COMPOSITION IN ONIGBEDU, OGUN STATE, IN RELATION TO ITS INDUSTRIAL USAGE AND DEPOSITIONAL ENVIRONMENT

Field relationship, petrographical studies and geochemical analysis were combined in investigating the depositional environment and industrial viability of limestone beds in Purechem’s quarry at Onigbedu. Field observation indicates a homogenous lithology of the beds with variation in textural and clastic composition. Petrographic study revealed that the limestone falls under the Biospamicrite and Wackestone classification based on the works of Folks, (1959) and Dunham, (1962) respecti...
