Mississippi Valley Type (MVT) Pb-Zn Deposits spanning upper/middle/lower Benue trough

The Benue Trough has had a complex geological history involving:

1. Mesozoic to Cenozoic magmatism.
2. Post-inversion sedimentation; and
3. Compressional Inversion in the early-Santonian;
4. left-lateral strike-slip shearing;
5. Extensional marine Sedimentation in Albian to Turonian times
