Exploitation and Development of Non-metallic mineral deposits of Nigeria

In this academic term paper, the industrial minerals in Nigeria were evaluated. The economic potentials were determined. Also, the level of the development and the industrial uses of these minerals were evaluated. It will interest you to know that Nigeria has over 30 industrial minerals. These minerals are dispersed in all regions of the country.

Aeromagnetic and Resistivity Surveying for Delineating Optimal Sites for Groundwater development in part of Minna, Sheet 164 SW, North-Central Nigeria

This study was conceptualised out of a need to help stem the continuous rising incidences of failed and abandoned wells in the study area. This situation is attributable to inadequate understanding of the hydrogeological and structural disposition of the area. The study area is underlain by crystalline rocks belonging to the Basement complex of Nigeria. These rocks comprise of Schist, Gneiss, Quartzite and Granite with minor occurrences of alluvial deposits. Analysis and interpretation of the...

The Geology and Petrography of Precambrian Basement Rocks of Gbunchu and Environs in Akwanga Local Government Area, Nassarawa State, North-Central Nigeria.

ABSTRACTThe study area is located within the north-central Nigeria in Akwanga town, Nassarawa state. It lies between Latitudes 8°55'N to 9°00'N and Longitudes 8°25'E to 8°30'E. It is underlain by crystalline rocks of the Basement Complex “sensu stricto”, which comprises of migmatitic banded gneiss, biotite gneiss and gneissic granite. Based on the field characteristics and petrographic studies the area is believed to have attained a very high regional metamorp...

CHEMICAL CLASSIFICATION OF GRANITIC ROCKS AROUND GWADA AREA

AbstractThe geochemical classification of granitic rocks in the Gwada area of Niger State, North Central Nigeria was carried out. The methodology adopted for the research consists of fieldwork and geochemical analysis of rock samples using XRF at Nigerian Geological Survey Agency, Kaduna. Field evidence suggests that, the Gwada area mapped is largely underlain by highly weathered Schist and Granites. The granites occur as an intrusion into the highly weathered Schist in the study area. The ge...

GEO-STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF THE HYDRO-GEOCHEMICAL PARAMETERS OF RIVER NIGER FLOOD PLAIN WATER, JEBBA, CENTRAL NIGERIA

The Geo-statistical evaluation of the hydrochemical data of river Niger floodplain water in Jebba and its environs, Nigeria was carried out using Multivariate statistical analysis such as Correlation Analysis (CA), Factor Analysis (FA), Hierarchical Cluster Analysis (HCA) and Principal Components Analysis (PCA) to classify the water geochemistry. Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometry technique was used for cations analysis while the anions were analyzed by using volumetric analysis. The wat...

Geochemistry and Engineering Studies on Clay Deposits Around the Ahoko Area, Southern Bida Basin, Kogi State, Nigeria

A  detailed  geologic  mapping  of  clay  deposits  in  the  Patti  Formation  around  the  Ahoko  area  in Kogi  State  (north-central  Nigeria)  was  carried  out  on  a  scale  of  1:12,500.  The  study  area  lies within  the  Lokoja  Sub-basin  of  the  Bida  Basin  between  longitudes  60  51l  and  60  53l  E  and  latitudes 80  18l and  80 19l  N  covering  a  total  land  area  of  about  6.85km2  of  the  Koton-Karfi  N-E...

Relating Geology and Geological Structures with Regional Episodes: Implication for Groundwater Exploration and Development around Kwal-Kanke Area, Jos Plateau

AbstractThe  study  addressed  the  Geology  and  geological structures around  Kwal-Kanke  area  around  the  Jos  plateau. Three (3) rock types namely; Quaternary dolerite/basic rocks, aplo-pegmatitic  granite  gneiss  and  migmatite-gneiss  were delineated. The  quaternary  dolerites  and  the  aplo-pegmatitic granite  are  emplaced  in  form  of  dykes  with  lateral  extent greater than 3km trending NW-SE and conforms to the trend of the fractures around Ji...

A Report on Using Geographic Information System (GIS) to Select Solid Waste Disposal Site: A Case Study in Techiman Municipality, Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana

ABSTRACTSolid waste management over the years has been a serious problem on the nation Ghana. This solid waste materials are generated by humans in the cities and municipalities of almost all developing countries. In this country, it is one of the most pressing concerns of the government because of the health problems that comes with it when not managed well. In most countries locating a suitable site for the construction of landfills is not easy. With the invention of the Geographic In...

PETROPHYSICAL EVALUATION AND DETERMINING THE DEPOSITIONAL ENVIRONMENT OF OBAMA FIELD SOUTH-WEST NIGER DELTA

ABSTRACTThe logs from three wells of Obama Field, offshore south-west of Niger Delta Basin were studied for the purpose of evaluating the petrophysical properties and interpreting the depositional environments. The analyses carried out involve delineation of lithologies, identification of reservoirs and fluid types, wells correlation and determination of petrophysical parameters of identified reservoirs and interpreting their environment of deposition. A suite of wire-line logs comprising gam...

A Palynology and paleoenvironmental Study of a Section from the Amansiodo-1 Well, Anambra Basin, Southeastern Nigeria

Abstract: Palynological analysis was carried out on twenty (20) ditch cutting samples from a section (1284.73–1496.57 m) of the Amansiodo-1 well, Anambra Basin, southeastern Nigeria with the aim of determining the age,biozone, and depositional environment of the sediments within the depth interval. The laboratory techniques ofdigesting sediments in hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids for silicates and carbonates removal were followed toprocess the samples for the recovery of palynomorphs. F...

GEOLOGY OF KAFIN MAIYAKI AND ITS ENVIRONS, NORTHWESTERN NIGERIA

The study area Kafin Maiyaki and its environs is a segment of sheet 103 Federal Survey Topographical Sheet 103 Ikara NW. The area is underlain by migmatite-gneiss and medium to coarse grain gneiss and has been intruded by a series of Pan African Granitoids. Geological structures observed in the area were faults, joints and veins trending mostly in the NW-SE and NE-SW indicating the effect of Pan African Orogeny. No evidence of economic mineralization has been observed but from the petrographi...

Geology and Water Quality Assessment of Okpoma Salt Lake Areas in Yala Local Government Area of Cross-River State, Nigeria

ABSTRACT Geology and Water Quality Assessment of the Salt Lake areas of Okpoma and its environs in Yala Local Government Area of Cross River State has been carried out. The study area lies between longitude 08o 361 E to 08o 411 E of the equator and latitude 06o 321 N to 06o 371 N of the meridian respectively.

Petrophysical characterization of Reservoir Sands of Two Wells in the Offshore Depobelt of the Niger Delta Basin

Petrophysical well logs were integrated in an analysis for the reservoir characterization of C and D wells located in the Offshore Depobelt of the Niger Delta Basin, Nigeria. The study essentially determined reservoir properties such as Lithology, shale volume, Porosity, hydrocarbon saturation and Net-Gross from Well logs with a  view to determining the Reservoir quality. Two lithologies were identified using Gamma ray and Resistivity logs which were sand and shale but minor presence of ...
