    Abstract. The Permian Basin is the largest and most productive hydrocarbon-bearing basin in North America and one of the largest in the world - truly a super basin - with a thickness of more t ft (7, m) of Paleozoic rocks, more than , wells drilled, and 39 Billion barrels of oil produced. The conglomerate contains clasts and fossils eroded from older units exposed within the paleovalley. Sandstone beds exhibit large scale (up to 1 m thick) trough and tabular-planar cross beds. Paleocurrent directions are generally southwest and indicate deposition via large-scale fluvial systems that were constrained within the paleovalleys.

    The imprint of geologic events left on the materials of sedimentary basins is the most detailed record of the history of Earth's outer shell, the lithosphere. Basins come in many shapes and sizes and form in response to a variety of processes that influence the elevation of Earth's surface. @article{osti_, title = {Overview of the structural geology and tectonics of the Central Basin Platform, Delaware Basin, and Midland Basin, West Texas and New Mexico}, author = {Hoak, T and Sundberg, K and Ortoleva, P}, abstractNote = {The structural geology and tectonics of the Permian Basin were investigated using an integrated approach incorporating satellite imagery, aeromagnetics.

In the study area, Mabruk oil field in northwestern Sirte Basin, three level of low, intermediate, and high-order cycles are delineated in Khalifah Formation. Six low-order cycles are interpreted within the formation. Structural and. Geological history About 1 million years ago the Soutpansberg depositional basin was formed as an east-west trending asymmetrical rift or half-graben along the Palala Shear Belt. This belt formed between two major crustal blocks, e.g. the Kaapvaal craton in the south and the Limpopo Belt in the north. Deposition started with basaltic lavas.

The base of the Transvaal Supergroup in the Transvaal Province is marked by a km thick sequence of quartz arenite and shale forming the Wolkberg and Buffalo Springs groups.

A second main axis of deposition and volcanism, orientated east-northeast-west-southwest, joins the Tshwene-Tshwene belt, Buffelsfontein Group and Wolkberg Group in the model. The former two are shown as restricted, narrow basins, lying along the trend of the Thabazimbi-Murchison lineament, with the Wolkberg modelled as a half-graben lying to.

The Kaapvaal intrageosyncline, one of the oldest cratonic basins of the Precambrian shield areas, offers an almost complete record of deposition and diastrophism that occurred between c. 1,4 and 3,0 Ga B.P. Its tectonic development started after the consolidation of the Early Archaean crustal structure when sequences such as the Pongola, Dominion Reef and Witwatersrand accumulated in a.

The Late Archaean-Early Proterozoic Transvaal Sequence is preserved within the Transvaal, Kanye and Griqualand West basins, with the Ma Bushveld Complex intrusive into the upper portion of the succession within the Transvaal basin. Both Transvaal and Bushveld rocks are extensively mineralized, the former containing large deposits of iron, manganese, asbestos, andalusite, gold, fluorine.

A new geological map of the Rustenburg Layered Suite south of the Ysterberg–Planknek fault of the northern/Potgietersrus limb of the Bushveld Complex is presented, displaying features that were not available for publication in the past and are considered contributing to the complexity of this region.
