Mineralogy and chemistry of banded iron formations (BIF) of Tiruvannamalai area, Tamil Nadu



Mineralogy and chemistry of banded iron formations (BIF) of Tiruvannamalai area, Tamil Nadu



Journal of Earth System Science 98(2): 167-172



The mineralogy and chemistry of banded iron formations (BIF) of Archaean high grade granulite gneiss belt of Tiruvannamalai area are presented here. The BIF of this area is chemically different from those around the world. The iron formations and associated granulites are of different origin namely metasedimentary and metavolcanic respectively.
