Beginning ca. 2.76 Ga, evolution of the Kola-Karelia crust was related to the intracontinental high-temperature metamorphic (up to granulite facies) and magmatic events in combination with formation of the basins related to rifting and infilling with intracontinental volcanic and sedimentary sequences initiated by plume-type processes in the mantle. The geological events corresponding to intracontinental evolution were expressed not only in the formation of new rock associations, juvenile to a significant extent, but also in reworking of previously formed rocks. The age, content, and mode of geological activity are somewhat different in the Kola and the Karelian-Belomorian regions.
