In North America, the Precambrian or Canadian Shield includes northeastern Canada, a geochronology on detrital zircons indicates some of the region may be older than Ma (Bohm et al., ). GEOLOGY – Vol. IV – The Geology of North America - Virginia B. Sisson. Outcrops in the United States are found in places like northern Michigan, the bottom of the Grand Canyon, the Colorado Rocky Mountains (Fig.9), New Mexico (Fig), and the Transverse Ranges of southern California (Fig).

Precambrian - Precambrian - Precambrian life: Precambrian rocks were originally defined to predate the Cambrian Period and therefore all life, although the term Proterozoic was later coined from the Greek for “early life.” It is now known that Precambrian rocks contain evidence of the very beginnings of life on Earth—which, based on the age of the rocks that contain the oldest.

Late Precambrian (– Ma) igneous activity in the North Eastern Desert of Egypt produced large volumes of compositionally bimodal magmas. A single composite dike was studied to further examine petrogenetic relationships between andesitic and rhyolitic melts. The dike consists of –2 m of andesite on either side of a 5–6 m wide rhyolite by: “Geochronology of the Proterozoic basement of southwestern North America, and the origin and evolution of the Mojave crustal province.” Tectonics, v, n.4, p Martin Brasier, John Cowie, and Michael Taylor ().
