SUMMER SYMPOSIUM AT KARIBA, 19-22 November 2015

The Geological Society of Zimbabwe holds an annual symposium towards the end of each year where presenters, from among the membership and invited guests, talk on a wide variety of topics of interest to the geological community.

A pre-symposium field excursion will visit various outcrops along the road from Karoi to Kariba to look at the Hurungwe gneisses, the Makuti Group (with a detour to the Zambezi escarpment), a couple stops 10-12 km E of Kariba to see porphyritic granitoids and granitic gneisses, and the Kariba Sillimanite Quartzite. Discussions at the outcrops will include tectonic and geological implications of the new geochronological results from these localities – leader Sharad Master (WITS).
