A bibliography of important geological studies on the Younger Granites Ring Complexes (YGRC) of Nigeria was conducted over a 64-year period: 1951-2015. The study presents a comprehensive list of primary sources of geological information on the study area which are both useful for present and future research. Based on the study, it was found that a total of 89 documents were produced and published on YGRC of Nigeria in various scientific journals around the world emphasizing different aspects of the geology of the study area. It was found that in the 26 years out of 64 years of study, no literature was published on the YGRC of Nigeria. The study also show that the foundational literature on the geology of the YGRC of Nigeria were conducted by British geologists and miners in the early part of the 20th century after the discovery of tin mineralization. Later studies were conducted by active participation of indigenous scientists from various universities and research organizations in Nigeria and Africa. Based on our findings, we categories the literature on the YGRC of Nigeria into three main groups—early, later and present day studies. Studies conducted in the early periods of geological research focused mainly on appraising and characterizing the geology, while later studies involved relatively more detailed scientific investigations using different geophysical and geochemical methods to aid in mineral exploration. In the present day, studies the literature has focused mainly on environment, geo-medicine, advanced geophysical analysis, satellite imagery for structural studies, Ta-Nb mineralization, etc.
