The sector of Mugote repose on a kibarian socle olded from precambrian, surmonted by cenozoic sediments and inruded by magmatic rocks. Hydrothermalism followed these events.The geological formations of Mugote are in majority classed on metamorphic rocks’s family. The main lithologies are: quartzite, quartzo-shales, sandstonous shale, gneiss, greizen. Magmatism has allowed establishing pegmatites. From works on field and the macroscopic analysis of samples refered to relative dating principles, we deduct that locally the succession of formations is: gneiss, quartzite, shale, sandstonous shale. Theses formations are intruded by pegmatites and greizen.

Abstract: (french)

Le secteur de Mugote repose sur un socle kibarien datant du précambrien, surmontee par les sédiments cénozoïques et intrudés par les roches magmatiques. Celles-ci se sont accompagnées par l’hydrothermalisme du type greisenification dominant. Les formations géologiques de Mugote sont majoritairement métamorphiques dont les lithologies caractéristiques sont: les quartzites, les quartzo-schistes, les schistes gréseux, les gneiss, les greisens. Le magmatisme a permis de mettre en place les pegmatites. Des travaux de terrain et l’analyse macroscopique des échantillons, appliquant les principes de datation relative, nous déduisons que, localement, ces formations se succèdent de la manière suivante: gneiss, quartzites, schistes gréseux. Les tous sont intrudées par les pegmatites et les greisens.
