... of sulphide mineralization i the Dodoma Shield left data only for the Nyanza Shield, which is presented in this paper. Two systems of bedded rocks have been recognized in the greenstone belts of the Nyanza Shield (Quennell et al. x956 ). The Nyanzian System, the host to most of the gold mineralization...

... Abstract P rofessor R. M. S hackleton: The valuable results obtained by the author still led to no definite solution to one of the major problems of this region. This is the relative ages of the granulite metamorphism of central and northern Uganda and the greenschist metamorphism of the Nyanzian...

... terrain in the northwestern part of the Tanzanian Craton. Pegmatites, aplite, dolerite, lamprophyre dykes and quartz veins, some of which are auriferous, cut the greenstones of the Nyanzian System. The greenstone belt commonly comprises metavolcanics (mainly tholeitic and komatiitic mafic lavas...

... Soroti, within the basement complex in central Uganda, are indicative of a much earlier period of plutonic activity. Low-grade metasediments of the Buganda-Toro System, overlying the basement gneisses to the south, were not affected by the Pan-African event, and retain whole-rock K-Ar ages of up to 1,860...

...PETER J. LEGGO Abstract Geochronological reconnaissance of the Uganda basement suggests that the Watian Granulites of the West Nile are the oldest rocks. These rocks have been closed chemical systems for at least 2880 m.y. although throughout the basement they have also been reactivated at about...
