Incomplete contents:
The 1:2 000 000 geological map of New Zealand is a synthesis of the more detailed geology presented on the 1:1 000 000 map published in 1972 and incorporates the results of recent geological mapping. The rocks of New Zealand are divided on this map into 47 units based primarily on time relationships, but Quaternary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks are subdivided on the basis of rock type and composition. Economic mineral resources of New Zealand include metallic minerals, construction, manufacturing, and agricultural materials, mineral fuels, and groundwater. Hazards resulting from geological processes include landslide, earthquake, fault movement, volcanic eruption, tsunami, and flooding
