    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 . The Zimbabwe Craton is an area in Southern Africa of ancient continental crust, being a part of the ancient continent of Western Gondwana, with rocks dating back to the early Archean Eon, possibly as early as billion years ago (). The craton is named after the country of Zimbabwe where the majority of the craton is. The rocks of the Zimbabwe Craton are separated from the .

Precambrian Research publishes studies on all aspects of the early stages of the composition, structure and evolution of the Earth and its planetary neighbours. With a focus on process-oriented and comparative studies, it covers, but is not restricted to, subjects such as: (1) Chemical, biological, biochemical and cosmochemical evolution; the origin of life; the evolution .

He was interested in every aspect of the Earth Sciences, although his passion was for Precambrian rocks throughout the world, and particularly those of NW Scotland.

In the first paper Maarten de Wit & Andrew I-lynes discuss the onset of interaction between the hydrosphere and oceanic crust.

Iron-rich sedimentary rocks contain ≥15 percent metallic iron by weight (James, ) and form a class of chemical sediments comparable to evaporites and workers recognize two main categories. Iron Formations are generally cherty, thinly laminated, and Precambrian in ones are generally less siliceous, more aluminous, not laminated, smaller, and.

Early juvenile accretion ( Ga) proceeded by emplacement of sills (Sira‐type juvenile crust) concordant with the flat fabrics. Late intrusions ( Ga), such as the Closepet batholith, intruded as funnels into a constrictional and fully developed interference pattern between shallow and steep foliations.

– In Early Precambrian processes. Edited by M.P. Coward and A.C. Ries. Geological Society Special Publication Crossref. Precambrian time covers the vast bulk of the Earth's history, starting with the planet's creation about billion years ago and ending with the emergence of complex, multicelled life-forms.

Gold deposits in the Archaean Eastern Goldfields Province in Western Australia were deposited in greenstone supracrustal rocks by fluids migrating up crustal scale fault zones. Regional ENE-WSW D2 shortening of the supracrustal rocks was detached from lower crustal shortening at a regional sub-horizontal detachment surface which transects stratigraphy below.

The Precambrian (or Pre-Cambrian, sometimes abbreviated pЄ, or Cryptozoic) is the earliest part of Earth's history, set before the current Phanerozoic Eon.

The Precambrian is so named because it preceded the Cambrian, the first period of the Phanerozoic eon, which is named after Cambria, the Latinised name for Wales, where rocks from this age were first studied.
