Summary:A 1:250 000 geological map of 24 anorogenic ring complexes of Northern Nigeria is presented and accompanied by an account of the geology of 10 of the ring complexes. The complexes of Birnin Kudu, Dago, Dutse, Fagam and Shira are described for the first time, while only the structural outlines of the Kila-Warji and Ningi-Burra complexes were known previously. The volcanic successions at Banke, Ningi-Burra and Tibchi are described in some detail. Microprobe analyses are tabulated for fayalites (Fa92-99), pyroxenes (ferrohedenbergites, ferroaugites, hedenbergites, aegirine), amphiboles (arfvedsonites, ferrorichterites, ferroedenite, ferroactinolites, ferrowinchite), biotites, plagioclases, alkali feldspars, aenigmatites, narsarsukites, chevkinites, allanites and Fe-Ti oxides. A review of the geochemistry of the whole province is undertaken for the first time and factors related to petrogenesis are discussed. [R.A.H.]
