By Yevgeny A. Kozlovsky (auth.), Yevgeny A. Kozlovsky (eds.)

The current e-book is dedicated to the examine of the deep Earth's inside constitution, the most very important difficulties of Earth sciences this day. The drilling of the Kola superdeep good inaugurated a brand new degree within the examine of the Precambrian continental crust. The good was once sunk within the northeastern a part of the Baltic protect, in a space the place the Precambrian ore-bearing buildings, average of the traditional platform basements, are in juxtaposition with one another. to the current the good has been drilled to a intensity of 12 km, has traversed the whole thickness of the Proterozoic complicated and a substantial a part of the Archean stratum, and remains to be be­ ing labored on. This publication reports the relevant result of investigations to a intensity of 11,600 m; those are defined in 3 sections: geology, geophysics, and drilling. The booklet starts off with a common evaluate of the heritage, the current country of information, and tendencies of extra investigations within the box of analysis of the Earth's inside and superdeep drilling. the 1st component to the publication considers the geology of the region of the Kola superdeep good and describes its geological part in keeping with a close exam either one of the cores and the near-borehole area.

It seems most probable that gabbronorites of the Mount Genralskaya type (pyroxene-gabbro formation) also appeared during this stage of re- Geology of the SG-3 Well Site Area 31 gional evolution. Similar gabbronorites were also met in basal conglomerates of the Pechenga sedimentary-volcanic complex (Lower Proterozoic). Pechenga Complex. The Lower Proterozoic sedimentary-volcanic rocks, developed in the central part of the region, constitute the Pechenga graben syncline. This occupies an area of 2300 km 2 and stretches 310° north-west at a distance of 70 km.

It is composed of alternating two-mica and biotite gneisses with garnet and sometimes with sillimanite and kyanite, as well as of micaceous-actinolitic schists. Gneisses, and most probably a part of the Tundra series schists are of tuffitic volcano-sedimentary origin. Among volcanic and sedimentary rocks, metamorphosed mainly in the epidote-amphibolite facies and partially granitized, there are some cross-cutting amphibolite bodies whose composition is similar to that of the aluminiferous basalts; these bodies are considered to be comagmatites of the volcanites present in this series.

Geologists have displayed a permanent interest in this area, because it was notable for its copper-nickel deposits which are confined to ultrabasic intrusions (comagmatic with volcanites) and occurred between sedimentary rocks of the Proterozoic complex.
