About the Cover

The schist hosted Fe-Mn mineralization in the southernmost part of Zuru schist belt has not been appraised structurally, this work therefore aimed at evaluating the control of these mineralizations. To achieve this aim, the area was mapped geologically; structural data were taking, processed and interpreted. From the Rosset plots of the joints, fault and foliation plane direction, NW and NE directions were conspicuous. These directions were in line with the observed mineralization directions on the geologic map. From the integration of field mapping observation, it is concluded that the brittle structures control the Fe-Mn mineralization in Kaoje and its environs (Ref: Nnabo PN, Bamigboye OS, Adekeye JID, Adedoyin AD, Owoyemi OO. Structural control of Fe-Mn mineralization in Buya-Taka Lafia and their environs, Northwestern Nigeria. Discovery Science, 2018, 14, 1-8).
