The development of the Mianyang-Changning intracratonic sag significantly influenced the Late Proterozoic
to Early Cambrian oil/gas occurrences in the Sichuan basin, that is, chiefly through its influence on the distribution of high-quality reservoirs in the Late Proterozoic
Dengying and Early Cambrian Longwangmiao formations and of source-rocks in the Niutitang Formation.

and Silurian alkaline plutons within the southeastern New England Avalon zone.
By that time the transgressive sea environment was not yet entirely developed, but the sedimentation environment of the Late Proterozoic
had already faded.
The southern Appalachian Blue Ridge is composed predominantly of late Proterozoic
metaclastic and metavolcanic units overprinted by a mid-Paleozoic dynamothermal event that recrystallized these units to a range of metamorphic grades.
It has always been thought that the Earth completely froze twice during the late Proterozoic
era between 600 and 800million years ago.
The Pampean cycle developed during the Late Proterozoic
. It shows a collisional heft at the easternmost part of the Sierras Pampeanas, with a series of mafic and ultramafic rocks associated with tectonites.
Basement exposures in southwestern Rhode Island are dominated by multiply deformed late Proterozoic
to late Paleozoic plutonic and metasedimentary rocks [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED].
Exploration is also continuing in the late Proterozoic
complexes, notably in the alkaline Gardar Province of South Greenland.
Then sometime during the late Proterozoic
era, about 580 million years ago, life got big.
The Nagar Parkar Igneous Complex (NPIC) is considered as an extension of the Late Proterozoic
Malani Igneous suite (MIS) of western Rajasthan.
