Abstract. With an upbeat in petroleum exploration efforts in the Middle and Upper Benue Trough, emphasis is increasingly laid on the structural setting of the basin.

This work reports the results of the analysis of aeromagnetic data over the Middle Benue Trough, Nigeria. It is well known that the expression of the spectrum (radial and angular) for the total-field magnetic anomaly field has been Cited by: 1.

The earliest work done in the Middle Benue Trough of Nigeria was reported by Falconer () who reported the Asu River Group to be the oldest marine sedimentary formation which he then referred to it as the “Lower Shale”, Tattam () described the lithological unit as the “Cross River Series” and the name “Asu River Group” was obtained.

The Middle Benue Trough, Nigeria, is part of t he Benue Nigeria book of Nigeria. The Benue Trough is The Benue Trough is a 1,k m northeast-south west trending intra-cratoni c rift structure that.

A trace elements study of various samples from the Keana brines field, middle Benue Trough was carried-out to determine the extent to which Pb–Zn–S and BaSO4 mineralisations have affected the quality of the brines and the waters in the area.

Different sample media such as well-water, pond water, brine spring pool water, stream water, stream sediments etc. were analysed.

In the Albian times, a great delta developed in the Upper Benue Trough, while the first marine transgression coming from the opening Gulf of Guinea occurred in the south and reached the Middle Benue.

The widespread Turonian transgression made the Atlantic and Tethys waters communicate through the Sahara, Niger basins and the Benue Trough.

The study area covered Abuni and its environs in the Awe Local Government area of Nasarawa State, Nigeria. The area is part of the Middle Benue Trough of Nigeria and the area is composed of the Late Albian - Cenomanian Awe and Keana Formations (consisting essentially of sandstones with intercalations of bands of shales and clays) and Cenozoic volcanics.

Uppsala: [Paleontologiska inst., Uppsala universitet], 1,2,3Department of Geology, University of Port Harcourt, Port Harcourt, Nigeria ABSTRACT Palynological baseline data acquisition and analysis were carried on longitudes E and E and latitudes N and N spanning the area from middle to southern Benue Trough for the purpose of.Summary.

The results of an interpretation of aeromagnetic anomalies over the Lower and Middle Benue Trough of Nigeria are presented.

Two-dimensional interpretation of the anomalies shows that the anomalies are best interpreted in terms of basic intrusive bodies occurring either within the Cretaceous sediments or within the metamorphic basement or both.
