The appraisal of the structural geology of Kakuri Sheet 144 using integrated analyses of remotely sensed lineaments, aeromagnetic anomaly, micro and macro structures show a tectonic framework expressed by a mainly NW – SE ductile vertically dipping foliation of transpressed tectono-metamorphic possibly pre-Pan African (S1) trend which has been overprinted by a set of NE – SW (L2) fracture system cut obliquely by an E-W (L3) sinistral shearing with a dextral sense. Magmatic activity might have exploited these north-easterly fracture systems which are consistent with the regionally deep seated north-easterly fault systems that define the limits of the schist belts, the younger granites and Benue Trough.
Key words: structural geology, structural fabric, geological map.
