    Arabian Peninsula is the largest peninsula in the world, at 3,, km 2 (1,, sq mi). Arabia consists of seven countries: Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. The peninsula formed as a result of the rifting of the Red Sea between 56 and 23 million years ago, and is bordered by the Red Sea to the west and southwest, the Persian Gulf to the. During the Mesozoic most of the Arabian Peninsula, Persian Gulf, south‐western Iran, and eastern Iraq constituted the Arabian platform. Deformation of the Musandam Peninsula in the Late Cretaceous and mid‐Tertiary by compression (subduction) from the east and southwest, collision of the Arabian platform and Eurasian plate along the Zagros Crush zone during the Oligocene or early Miocene.

    The terranes in Yemen may be correlated with comparable terranes on the eastern margin of the Arabian Shield and in northern Somalia. Thus Yemen provides a link between the arc collage of the Arabian Shield and the gneissic Mozambique belt of East Africa. The book is representing a pioneer work in the field of Economic Geology/Ore Geology of Kurdistan, Northeast Iraq. The studied area was politically unstable until , hence the geological work was limited and not in detail. As Mawat Ophiolite Complex is a part of this area, therefore studies related to this important complex was very limited.

The sequence is resting on the flanks of the Arabian Shield. The Arabian Shield is a tectonically stable region. The base of the sequence is made of igneous and metamorphic rocks. The sedimentary succession consists of carbonates, sulphates, shales, marls and sandstones. The consolidation of the Arabian Shield is an ancient polygonal mass of continental crust occupying somekm 2, about one third of the Arabian Peninsula.

It lies on the western side of the peninsula flanking the Red Sea with a relatively flat, slightly undulating surface that can be traced north, northwest, and west. The Arabian-Nubian Shield (ANS) is an exposure of Precambrian crystalline rocks on the flanks of the Red Sea. The crystalline rocks are mostly Neoproterozoic in age.

Geographically - and from north to south - the ANS includes parts of Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Yemen, and Somalia.

The Shield serves as an excellent example of a large young crust that had evolved within million years from an 8-km long oceanic crust to about km long continental crust. As such, the Arabian Shield is a unique natural laboratory for the study of the rich geologic history of the Earth during the Neoproterozoic Era.
