    Author(s): Faye Abule*, Dereje Kenea and Firawalin Desalegn

    The Anger Gute area is located in the metamorphic terrains of Western Ethiopian Basement within the Nekemte map sheet. It occupies kilometres of metamorphic outcrops with a felsic granitoid intrusion. These granitoid intrusion cut across in the form of lineament that emplaced along with the lithological contact of low and high-grade rocks with decreasing of metamorphic grade from the lower to the upper complex. There are different microstructures and textures such as; perthites, mrymekite, quartz-vein, and joints with minimum space which indicates the tectonic evolution and metamorphic processes of granitoid rocks of the Anger Gute area. Anger Gute granite has been emplaced pre, syn/late-to post tectonically associated with the major deformation events. The deposits from massive boulders, big hills, mountain chains with minimum discontinuities afford the wide poss.. View More»
