Tutor description

The purpose of the project consists of elaborating a detailed geological map (1: 2000) of a region of 632 hectares or rather 6.32 km² located immediately to the South of the auriferous zone of Nambija, on current development. With this purpose, an equipment composed by two geologists and a topographer, and complementing afterwards with a geophysical

Geologic materials[edit]The majority of geological data comes from research on solid Earth materials. These typically fall into one of two categories: rock and unconsolidated material.Rock[edit]This schematic diagram of the rock cycle shows the relationship between magma and sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rockMain articles:Rock (geology)andRock cycleThere are three major types of rock:igneous,sedimentary, andmetamorphic. Therock cycleis an important concept in geology which illustrates the relationships between these three types of rock, and magma. When a rockcrystallizesfrom melt (magmaand/orlava), it is an igneous rock. This rock can beweatheredanderoded, and thenredepositedandlithifiedinto a sedimentary rock, or be turned into ametamorphic rockdue to heat and pressure that change themineralcontent of the rock which gives it a characteristicfabric. The sedimentary rock can then be subsequently turned into a metamorphic rock due to heat and pressure and is then weathered, eroded, deposited, and lithified, ultimately becoming a sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rock may also be re-eroded and redeposited, and metamorphic rock may also undergo additional metamorphism. All three types of rocks may be re-melted; when this happens, a new magma is formed, from which an igneous rock may once again crystallize.The majority of research in geology is associated with the study of rock, as rock provides the primary record of th
