Detailed geological mapping of the research area was carried out to update the previous information known about the geology of the study area. The new geologic map was produced to establish the relationship between different lithological units by mapping out distinct geologic boundaries, and delineating the general structural trend of associated geologic structures on a geologic map. Results from petrographic analysis of rock thin-sections obtained from the study area reveal the presence of Syenite, Quartz monzonite, Tonalite, and Gabbro. Associated geological structures observed include dykes, Quartz and Epidote veins, and faults/joints. The research area is enriched with economic importance of Granite has been extensively used as a dimension stone and as flooring tiles in public and commercial buildings and monuments. The rocks are mostly quarried for engineering purposes.
