The Karakoram Metamorphic Complex forming the southern margin of the Karakoram consists of various metasedimentary (Hunza schists and dominantly Hunza limestone) and metaigneous granodiorite rocks, which show a complex polyphase evolution of deformation and metamorphism (Bertrand and Debon, 1986; Searle, 1986).
The basement complex of Southwestern Nigeria predominantly composed of migmatite and granitic gneiss; quartzite; slightly migmatised to unmigmatised metasedimentary schist and metaigneous rocks; charnockite; gabbro and diorite; and the members of the older granite suite, mainly granites, granodiorites, and syenites.
