Title: Reconnaissance Geology in State of Anzoategui, Venezuela, South America

Author(s): M. Kamen Kaye (2)


After a brief discussion on the general stratigraphy of the state of Anzoategui, a reconstruction of geological events in the Anzoategui geosynclinal basin is attempted. Tentative conclusions are drawn from heavy-mineral work and are incorporated in the argument of geological history. Suppositions as to the present shape and present sedimentation of the geosyncline are then drawn from the results and interpretations of seismic work with which the writer was associated. Finally, field practice in seismometry is briefly discussed.
