Petrochemical characterization of dolerites and their influence on coal in the Witbank Highveld Coalfield, South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2008-08)
A study was firstly conducted on the mineralogy and geochemistry of the dolerites, secondly on sedimentological controls (syngenetic) on coal deposition and diagenesis to gain a better understanding of the environment of ...
The relationship between geological structures and dolerite intrusions in the Witbank Highveld Coalfield, South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2008-05)
English: The study forms part of the COALTECH 2020 research program, a collaborative study which aims to ensure the continued viability of the South African Coal Mining Industry well beyond the year 2020. It participates ...
The seismo-deformation of Karoo aquifers induced by the pumping of a borehole
(University of the Free State, 2003-09)
The research unequivocally showed that pump-induced seismo-deformations exist, especially in boreholes equipped with electric and diesel pumps. Central to seismo-deformations are the mechano- and the geo-acoustic effects ...
A proposed method to implement a groundwater resource information project (GRIP) in rural communities, South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2005-07)
English: Groundwater forms an essential part of water supply in the Limpopo Province, South Africa. However, at planning level this message seems to be skewed and misinterpreted. Although a vast number of water supply ...
The geochemistry of the dykes in the Carletonville Goldfield
(University of the Free State, 2009-11)
Numerous dykes traverse the Witwatersrand Supergroup rocks in the Carletonville Goldfield. The aim of this study was to investigate a classification system for the dykes. Samples were obtained from Tau Tona and Mponeng ...
A new perspective on the geohydrological and surface processes controlling the depositional environment at the Florisbad archaeozoological site
(University of the Free State, 2009-04)
English: The Florisbad Quaternary Research Station and archaeozoological site is located 45 km north-west of Bloemfontein, Free State Province, South Africa (28° 46` 05.4”S, 26° 04` 10.7”E), and is sited around a series ...

Reconstruction of contact metamorphism of the Uitkomst Complex, near Badplaas, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa, based on mineralogical and petrological investigations of the contact aureole
(University of the Free State, 2009)
This study presents petrological, mineralogical and geochemical data from the country rocks surrounding the basic to ultrabasic Uitkomst Complex in the Mpumalanga Province, South Africa. The investigations resulted in a ...
Assessment of potential toxic influence of uranium trial mining in the Karoo uranium province
(University of the Free State, 2003)
An assessment of uranium trial mining on four mining sites in the Karoo Uranium Province, South Africa revealed localised above-background values for U, Mo, Pb, Cu, As and Fe in surface - and ground water, soils, sediment ...
Hydrogeochemical determination of the salt load from copper mine waste in the Bushveld igneous complex
(University of the Free State, 2008-11-28)
This dissertation characterised geochemically waste from a copper mine in the Bushveld Igneous Complex, coupled with hydrochemical interpretations. In the first part of the dissertation, the methods involved in the ...
