        A new geological study has revealed that the evolution of the Pilbara began a lot earlier than previously recorded. Scientists have thought for some time . Proponents believe a swath of land running east-west across the west Pilbara, an area known as the Fortescue group, could be geologically linked to Witwatersrand and host rich gold mineralisation below the surface. It is an idea that has sent share prices soaring for Author: Stuart Mckinnon. A book that provides overview papers summarising regional geology and mineralisation for the different geological provinces and hundreds of descriptions of existing mines; articles arranged according to major geological provinces; papers being descriptive and intended to provide long-lasting data and information including geochemical and. Pilbara Region is coloured in red. The Pilbara Craton is an old and stable part of the continental lithosphere located in Pilbara, Western Australia.

A wealth of mineral deposits and petroleum resources formed during the billion year geological history of Western Australia. World-class mineral deposits include gold, iron, nickel, heavy mineral sands, diamonds and bauxite.

Petroleum abounds in the giant fields. Other articles where Pilbara Block is discussed: Australia: Tectonic framework: such as the Yilgarn and Pilbara blocks of the Western Shield, enclosed by later orogenic (mountain) belts.

The second is as the basement to a younger cover of Phanerozoic sediment (deposited during the past million years); for example, all the sedimentary basins west of the Tasman Line are underlain.

Other articles where Block is discussed: Precambrian: Occurrence and distribution of Precambrian rocks: shields, provinces, or blocks. Some examples include: the North Atlantic craton that incorporates northwestern Scotland, central Greenland, and Labrador; the Kaapvaal and Zimbabwean cratons in southern Africa; the Dharwar craton in India.

The Pilbara region of Western Australia, covering some km × km, provides a diversity of Archaean to Proterozoic igneous rocks in a relatively compact area that records a younging southward crustal history of igneous activity, sedimentation, early life, tectonics, and metamorphism from the Archaean (– Ga) to Proterozoic (– Ga).Cited by: 2.

With such ancient rocks, the Pilbara is now internationally known as the best 'field laboratory' for studying the early history of Earth. Geology and Landforms of the Pilbara has a wealth of information crammed into. The Pilbara has become central to the Australian economy and imagination.
