Sedimentology, coral reef zonation, and late Pleistocene coastline models of the Sodwana Bay continental shelf, Northern Zululand
This geostrophic current-controlled Zululand/Natal shelf displays a unique assemblage of interesting physical, sedimentological and biological phenomena. The shelf in this area is extremely narrow compared to the global ...
The mineralogy, petrology and PGE geochemistry of the UG2 cyclic unit at Lebowa Platinum mine (ATOK), North-Eastern Bushveld complex.
This project is an investigation of the UG2 cyclic unit of the Upper Critical Zone at Lebowa (Atok)
The petrology, geochemistry and classification of the Bien Venue massive sulphide deposit, Barberton mountain land.
The Bien Venue massive sulphide deposit is associated with a felsic volcanic succession developed in the north-eastern part of the Barberton Greenstone Belt, Eastern Transvaal. The deposit is situated 8km east-north-east ...
The marine geology of the Aliwal Shoal, Scottburgh, South Africa.
This study represents the first detailed geological, geophysical and geochronological investigation of the continental shelf surrounding the Aliwal Shoal, ~5 km offshore of Scottburgh, in southern KwaZulu-Natal. Mapping ...
The geology and rock mass quality of the Cenozoic Kalahari Group, Nchwaning Mine Northern Cape.
With the extension of the Nchwaning Mine shaft complex in the Northern Cape Province, various geological and geotechnical complications needed to be identified in order to ensure correct use of tunnelling methods and ...
The marine geology of the Northern KwaZulu-Natal continental shelf, South Africa.
This study proposes that the submarine canyons of the northern Kwazulu-Natal continental margin formed contemporaneously with hinterland uplift, rapid sediment supply and shelf margin progradation during the forced ...
The genesis of the quartz-sericite schists of the Toggekry Formation, Nondweni Greenstone Belt, South Africa.
The aim of this study was to investigate the origin of sulphide-bearing quartz sericite-schists of the Toggekry Formation in the Archaean Nondweni greenstone belt (NGB) in the SE Kaapvaal craton, and to compare them with ...
Seismic-stratigraphic models for late Pleistocene/Holocene incised valley systems on the Durban continental shelf.
This dissertation examines the Durban continental shelf of the east coast of South Africa from a seismic and sequence stratigraphic perspective. High resolution seismic data reveal eleven seismic Units (A-K) offshore ...
Alkaline intrusives from the Tugela terrane, Natal metamorphic province.
Three gneissose alkaline granitoid intrusives at Ngoye, Bulls Run and Wangu are described. They are located within the Nkomo Nappe of the Tugela Terrane, near the northern margin of the Natal Metamorphic Province. The ...
The geology and tectonic setting of the Shashe-Foley-Tonota area (Central Motloutse Complex), NE Botswana.
The well-developed NE-SW structural grain of the Shashe, Foley and Tonota (SFT) region is used to separate it from the NW-SE trending structures that characterise the Matsitama belt and adjacent area previously described ...
