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 ...
A stratigraphic and sedimentological study of the depositional environment of the A reef in the Ventersburg-Henneman district, Free State Goldfields
(University of the Free State, 2015-08-20)
The Ventersburg Project is located in the Free State Goldfields south of the town of Hennenman. The A Reef particularly its stratigraphic and sedimentological character is the subject of study in the project area. The reef ...
Geochemical and mineralogical investigation of the Merensky Reef and its noritic hangingwall at Two Rivers Platinum Mine and Eerste Geluk, Eastern Bushveld, with special reference to the PGE distribution and cryptic variation of the mineral chemistry
(University of the Free State, 2014-12)
This research study focuses on the unusual occurrence of noritic lenses (termed “brown sugar norite” by mine geologists), within the pyroxenite of the Merensky Reef as well as its hanging wall at Two Rivers Platinum Mine, ...
