    The introductory papers, written by experts on Precambrian environments, treat comprehensively the application of actualism to the Precambrian, the evolution and influence of life on the sedimentary rock record, the genesis of Banded Iron Formations, the Precambrian sulphur cycle and the significance of Precambrian chemical carbonate precipitates. The earliest Precambrian microbial structures appear in successions with banded iron formations (BIF) suggesting genetic relationships. The hypothesis of the deep ocean origin of BIFs associated with Mid-Ocean Ridge (MOR) like features seems to have been recently supported by the discovery of peculiar microbial ecosystems with unique faunal assemblages restricted to these volcanic vents.

    Product Type: Book Edition: 1 Volume: 16 First Published: Hardcover: eBook: The Endengue iron formations (IFs) belong to the Archaen Ntem greenstones belt at the NW edge of Congo craton and comprise magnetite-bearing gneiss associated with biotite-pyroxene gneiss and intruded by biotite granite and charnockite. The studied IFs are fine-grained; weak foliated rocks, composed of quartz-pyroxene-magnetite-plagioclase mineral assemblages, suggesting high-grade .

Banded iron formations are almost exclusively Precambrian in age, with most deposits dating to the late Archean ( Ma) with a secondary peak of deposition in the Orosirian period of the Paleoproterozoic ( Ma). Minor amounts were deposited in the early Archean and in the Neoproterozoic ( Ma).

The youngest known banded iron formation is an early Cambrian formation Primary: iron oxides, cherts. This book is similar in format to Precambrian Iron-Formations of the World, published in as a special issue of Economic Geology (vol.

On the Precambrian banded iron-formations and the manganese ores or the Singhbhum region, eastern India Economic Geology Iron-formation as an end member in carbonate sedimentary cycles in the Transvaal Supergroup, South Africa.

Banded-iron formation (BIF), chemically precipitated sediment, typically thin bedded or laminated, consisting of 15 percent or more iron of sedimentary origin and layers of chert, chalcedony, jasper, or quartz.

Such formations occur on all the continents and usually are older than billion. Iron-rich sedimentary rocks contain ≥15 percent metallic iron by weight (James, ) and form a class of chemical sediments comparable to evaporites and workers recognize two main categories.

Iron Formations are generally cherty, thinly laminated, and Precambrian in ones are generally less siliceous, more aluminous, not laminated, smaller, and Phanerozoic in age.

Many hypotheses regarding Earths history have been postulated from the difference between Phanerozoic and Precambrian iron-formations. In particular, the development of an oxygenated atmosphere has been deduced from the supposed evolution of iron-formations.

The subject has provided a fertile field for research and models of Earths history, but. Precambrian Banded Iron-Formations: Physicochemical Conditions of Formation | Y.P.

from a rhyolite in the sequence (Morey, ). The isotopic composition of Nd is reported for 8 banded iron formations (BIFs) ranging in age from to Ga. The data suggest a trend of increasingly positive ϵ Nd values with age and is interpreted to reflect isotopic variations in Precambrian seawater.

The Urucum ( Ga) and the Gunflint ( Ga) BIFs yield negative ϵ Nd values between −6 and 0. You can write a book review and share your experiences.

Many hypotheses regarding Earth’s history have been postulated from the difference between Phanerozoic and Precambrian iron-formations. In particular, the development of an oxygenated atmosphere has been deduced from the supposed evolution of iron-formations.

The aim of this book is to present a model for the origin of BIFs and derived. Banded Iron-Formations through Much of Precambrian Time Article (PDF Available) in The Journal of Geology 89(2) March with Reads How we measure 'reads'. The abundance of iron formations in Precambrian succes-sions was used in early studies as an argument for an anoxic state of the atmosphere and ocean (e.g., Cloud, ).

It is generally accepted that accumulation of such large masses of iron required the transport of Fe(II); in solution Fe(III) is es. Iron‐formation (IF) is an iron‐rich (±30% Fe) and siliceous (±50% SiO 2) sedimentary rock which results from extreme compaction and diagenesis of a chemical precipitate in which those components were major is widely, but irregularly, distributed within Precambrian.
