The parageneses of sulphide minerals in transgressive carbonatite of the Palabora Carbonatite Complex, South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2019-03)
The Palabora Complex, also known as the Palabora Carbonatite Complex, is situated in the Limpopo Province, next to the town of Phalaborwa. The complex intruded the Kaapvaal Craton in early Proterozoic times. The centre of ...
Investigation of the possibility of platinum-group element clusters in magmatic systems, using synthetic sulphide melts
(University of the Free State, 2014-01-28)
The behaviour of platinum-group elements (PGE: Ir, Os, Rh, Ru, Pd and Pt) on a nano level may be the key to the enrichment of PGE in mafic ore bodies, like the Bushveld complex. Temperature controlled sulphide melts were ...
Volatiles around two dimensional defect structures as indicated by micro diamonds in decompression cracks
(University of the Free State, 2011-05)
New evidence exist that micro diamonds do not only form at high pressure and under high temperature conditions in the diamond window, but can also be synthesized by polycondensation of light carbon-bearing molecules at ...

The content and behaviour of natural radionuclides in basement-hosted groundwater from Vaalputs, Namaqualand, South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2012-01)
English: Vaalputs, the South African radioactive waste disposal facility, is currently licensed to dispose only low and intermediate level radioactive waste. The repository has been disposing radioactive waste since 1986; ...
Structural-stratigraphic controls on carbon and related mineralization in the Witwatersrand basin
(University of the Free State, 2012-07)
The Witwatersrand basin is loaded with carbon. The carbon deposits locations are not site specific. Many localities where deposits occur are related to the structure and the sedimentology of the particular area. The purpose ...

An evaluation of the coal bed methane potential of the Mid-Zambezi and North Eastern Kalahari Karoo basins
(University of the Free State, 2017)
With the growing energy demand worldwide it is very important to identify any new fossil fuel resources for future use. Coal remains the most widely used fossil fuel for electricity generation in Southern Africa but over ...
Structural-stratigraphic investigation of an area near Kakamas and environs, Namaqua mobile belt, South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2017-07)
The study area is near Kakamas in the Northwest Cape and is located in the tectonostratigraphic Grünau Terrane - an accreted crustal fragment associated with the Mesoproterozoic Namaqua Province. The mapping campaign covered ...
