The title region lies within the southern charnockitic region, representing deeply eroded parts of the earth's crust and consisting largely of 2-​pyroxene facies rocks (gneisses and granites)​. Assocd. with these rocks are a suite of intrusions of doleritic, spessartitic, and dioritic compn. The sedimentary origin of the parent rocks is indicated by stratigraphic-​lithol., petrog. (absence of diffusion grain-​boundaries, presence of exsoln. perthites, rounded and zoned zircons, and absence of metasomatic reworking)​, and petrochem. evidence (simple chem. compn.)​. The charnockitic granolites lacking hornblende formed under very high temp., very low H2O pressure, and very high S partial pressure.
