      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, LNES , p 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.

Skickas inom vardagar Cratons and Fold Belts of India, is a unique attempt at presenting geological characteristics and evolution of the fold belts and the cratonic areas of the Indian shield. 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. Outline map of the shield showing the distribution of cartons 6.

DHARWAR CRATON: Dharwar craton is divided into two tectonic blocks in. 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.

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.

Plate tectonics. 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.

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.
