The cratons are flanked by a fold belt, with or without a discernible suture or shear zone, suggesting that the cratons, as crustal blocks or microplates, moved against each other and collided to generate these fold belts (Naqvi, ).

There are five major cratons in India. They are; 1. BASTAR CRATON 2. DHARWAR CRATON 3. SINGHBHUM CRATON 4. ARAVALLI CRATON 5. BHUNDELKHAND CRATON MAJOR CRATONS OF INDIA 5.

A topographic map of the Indian continent is given in Fig. 1 that shows important Proterozoic fold (mobile) belts like the Aravalli–Delhi (ADMB), the Satpura (SMB) and the Eastern Ghat (EGMB) Mobile Belts and Godavari Proterozoic Belt (GPB) and adjoining basins and cratons that are discussed here.

It also shows the epicentres of earthquakes of. The Bastar Craton also known as the Bhandara Craton or the Bastar-Bhandara Craton, occupies a quadrangular area with well-defined boundaries. Lithologically, the craton comprises patches of Archaean supracrustal rocks engulfed in a vast expanse of gneiss-granite of various ages, well-defined Proterozoic fold belts (comprising the Sausar, Sakoli.

View Academics in Cratons and fold belts in India on "Precambrian Ore Deposits of the East European and Siberian Cratons" is a sequel to "Precambrian Geology of the USSR" published in (English edition), in which the main emphasis was on the stratigraphy, magmatism and metamorphism of Precambrian assemblages in both ancient cratons (East European and Siberian) as well as in Phanerozoic fold belts.

The Indian Craton was once part of the supercontinent of that time, what is now India's southwest coast was attached to Madagascar and southern Africa, and what is now its east coast was attached to Australia.

During the Jurassic Period about Ma (ICS ), rifting caused Pangaea to break apart into two supercontinents, namely Gondwana (to. Cratons and Fold Belts of India by Ram Sharma and Publisher Springer.

Save up to 80% by choosing the eTextbook option for ISBN:The print version of this textbook is ISBN:The Indian shield represents a vast repository of the Precambrian geological record.

The Precambrian sedimentary basins were developed on four major Archaean nuclei (Dharwar, Bastar, Singhbhum and Aravalli–Bundelkhand; Fig.

) and are comparable to those of Australia, South Africa, Canada and Brazil in scale and importance for global studies of Precambrian. India, accompanied by Mishra’s()brief account of Archaean mineralization of the four Indian cratons. The memoir ends with a synthesis (Miall et al. ) of the Indian Precambrian basins wherein the basin classification and inferred prime controls on.

The Congo Craton, covered by the Palaeozoic-to-recent Congo Basin, is an ancient Precambrian craton that with four others (the Kaapvaal, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, and West African cratons) makes up the modern continent of cratons were formed between about and billion years ago and have been tectonically stable since that time.

All of these cratons are bounded by younger fold. The northwestern part of the Eastern Ghats Mobile Belt comprises a fold‐ thrust belt consisting of a stack of northwesterly verging nappes that have been thrust over the Bhandara Craton.

The Sinapalli Nappe is the lowermost nappe and rests over a tectonic contact on the Archean granites and gneisses of the craton. The extensive central cratons of the continents, including both shields and platforms, have been called hedreocratons. Parts of the more mature Phanerozoic fold belts have now achieved, or are approaching, a cratonic condition.

Also spelled: kraton. See also: thalassocraton. Syn: kratogen. Cratonic basin = A basin on top of a craton. Syn. Although cratons are not tectonically active, they can be located near active margins, such as the Brazilian craton at the rear of the Andean active margin.

Ram Sharma, Cratons and Fold Belts of India, Springer, Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences, LNESp The Bastar craton (BC) is also called Bastar-Bhandara craton. Africa - Africa - Geologic history: The African continent essentially consists of five ancient Precambrian cratons—Kaapvaal, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Congo, and West African—that were formed between about and 2 billion years ago and that basically have been tectonically stable since that time; those cratons are bounded by younger fold belts formed between 2 billion.

The Aravalli Mountain Range is a northeast-southwest trending orogenic belt in the northwest part of India and is part of the Indian Shield that was formed from a series of cratonic collisions.

The Aravalli Mountains consist of the Aravalli and Delhi fold belts, and are collectively known as the Aravalli-Delhi orogenic belt. The whole mountain range is about km long.

Whereas the mobile belts are the curvilinear, high-grade, gneiss-granulite belts that surround the cratons (Ramakrishnan and Vaidyanadhan (). The Indian Peninsular shield is a mosaic of such cratons and mobile belts.

It consists of mainly four Archean cratons: Bundelkhand Craton in the north, Singhbhum craton in the east, Bastar craton. Mobile Belt against the Bhandara Craton, India: A structural and zircon U-Pb SHRIMP study of the fold-thrust belt and associated nepheline syenite plutons Tapas Kumar Biswal,1 Bert De Waele,2,3 and Harish Ahuja1 Received 12 June ; revised 12 February ; accepted 6 April ; published 18 July [1] Sensitive High Resolution Ion.

This results in intense folding and faulting of rocks. Orogenies. Mountain belts with cratons on either side likely are products of _____ convergence. Continent-continent.

The Blue Ridge province of the Appalachian fold belt was thrust as sheets over the top of which India is colliding with Asia at a rate of approximately 4 millimeters per year.

The northwestern part of the Eastern Ghats Mobile Belt comprises a fold- thrust belt consisting of a stack of northwesterly verging nappes that have been thrust over the Bhandara Craton.

The oldest group of rocks forming the Craton was considered till recently as Dharwars, intruded extensively by granite of different ages (Pichamuthu, ). The rocks of Super schist. The towering Himalayas were formed by India pushing into Asia. This collision is still taking place. Younger belts of fold mountains, such as the Alps, have high elevations and rough mountain scenery.

Older mountain belts tend to be largely eroded down to plains or rolling uplands, as in the Appalachian Piedmont. Some of these eroded mountain.

Timing and dynamics of the juxtaposition of the Eastern Ghats Mobile Belt against the Bhandara Craton, India: A structural and zircon UPb SHRIMP study of the fold-thrust belt and associated nepheline syenite plutons.

Paleogeographic reconstructions suggest that India and Antarctica were closely positioned at equatorial latitudes in the Early Neoproterozoic (– Ga) and in the Late Neoproterozoic/Early Paleozoic, and Ga (Torsvik, ; Li et al., ).In the intervening period, broadly overlapping with the dispersal of crustal fragments of the Rodinia supercontinent, the Greater India.

() model differs from that of Martin () in that the protolith of the putative Greater Himalayan terrane accumulated close to the Indian craton in the former model.

In our view, both the Martin () and DeCelles et al. () models are incorrect, for reasons stated in our paper, as both studies overlooked.

The Kalahari craton occupies a large portion of South Africa and consists of the Kaapvaal, the Zimbabwe craton, the Limpopo belt, and the Namaqua has formed a stable unit for the past billion years ( Ga). As such, it contains some of the oldest known rocks and microfossils in the world.
