Nallamalai fold belt is demarcated from the undeformed western sub-basins by the prominent fault lineament called the Rudravaram Line along which cleavage begins to develop in the Cuddapah sediments, which become intensely deformed towards the boundary thrust in the east. Karanth Endowment Lecture T. Vaidyanadhan Award Endowment Lecture Baasin.
Suryaprakash Rao Endowment Lecture K. The arcuate north, south and western boundary of the Cuddapah basin marks the profound uncomformity called Eparchaean Unconformity in early literature on basement granites enclosing the Eastern greenstone belts in Kadiri, Veligallu and Tsundupalle in the south, and Raichur, Gadwal and Peddavuru in the north.
This is further complicated by a major domal upwarp across the middle of the basin marked by monocjinal flexures of the Kurnool strata in Gani Kalawa area; culminations and depressions at Jammalamadugu, Giddaluru and Srisailam plateau; Eshwarakupam dome of the lower Cuddapahs in the northern part of the Nallamalai hills; and granite domes of Vinukonda area in the north-east extremity. CATIA V5 CPD PDF The basin is well known for its mineral potential in the form of limestones and dolomites, bedded and vein barites, chrysotile asbestos and steatite, besides occurrences of base metals, diamond, phosphorite, uranium and abundant building and ornamental stones.
Sawkar endowment for Teachers training V. Prahalad Rao Memorial Lecture Dr. Cuddapah Basin NDR — National Data Repository India The basin extends for a length of about km along the arcuate eastern margin with a mean width of km, and is the second largest Purana basin of Penninsular India, cufdapah the great Vindhayan basin.

Gupta Gold Medal L. Naqvi Gold Medal K. The relation of the structural elements to the localization of mineral deposits in the Cuddapah Basin is discussed and the necessity for their precise interpretation for exploring the depth extension of the ore mineralization is stressed.

This site is best viewed using current versions of Firefox v. Future Challenges in Earth The Papaghni and Kurnool sub-basins are geographically interlinked, but were sites of deposition at different times, the Papaghni sub-basin containing lower Cuddapah sediments, and the Kurnool sub-basin containing the younger Kurnool sediments that overlie the Cuddapah sequence with a major unconformity.
A north-plunging low-amplitude asymmetrical synclinorium having a gently dipping western limb and intensely folded, overfolded and thrusted eastern limb is the major structural element. The author recommends further detailed structural mapping, especially in the eastern half of the basin, for solving the unsolved problems in the Cuddapah stratigraphy and structure.
The western half of the basin is undeformed and consists of four sub-basins, the Papaghni, Kurnool, Srisailam and Palnad. The crescent shaped, easterly concave and N-S trending Cuddapah basin Fig. The Cuddapah Basin in Andhra Pradesh is a remarkable tectonic and orogenic belt of the unfossiliferous Precambrian rocks of Peninsular India.
