Sudan geology

The first geological map of Sudan with complete description of the layers of rock in 1911 by the British Stanley Don , after several attempts and studies in the interest of the Sudanese area geology map for the purpose of renovation work Damen and a summary of the sequence of the class in Sudan. In 2004, work has been updated geological map of Sudan in collaboration with German experts. It was identified on the oldest rocks in the Sudan, which dates back to the era before the Cambrian.


 Spread Sudan rocks pre solid Cambrian, which is made up of stones of granite and gneiss are located particularly in the south-west, center and north-east of Sudan areas and constitute about 50% of the surface rocks that have occurred as a result of volcanic activity and are igneous rocks and sediments metal associated with the activity tectonic thermal about 500 million years ago It is the period of the African systematic is widely northwest Sudan regions of continental sedimentary sequence called the Nubian Sandstone name is due to the Cretaceous and has extensions in Egypt, Libya and Chad largest store of underground water in the African continent component. In the south-east of Sudan sediments eras tertiary and quaternary containing the spread oil components in Sudan, known as precipitation of UmRawaba deposits (consisting of sand and silt) and Al Quoz deposits (consisting of sand).

There in the center of Sudan, a huge mass of rocks of the pre-Cambrian sediments separating the North saturated groundwater for South sediments containing oil.
