Bushveld Lamprophyric Dyke Workshop, 2016 10 19

The Centre of Excellence for Integrated Mineral and Energy Resource will host a workshop on the lamprophyric (and kimberlite) dykes that cross-cut the Bushveld Complex. These dykes may present a unique opportunity to understand the provenance of the magmas and metals that formed the Bushveld Complex itself. From a practical viewpoint, these lamprophyric dykes are major hazards to underground mining operations through a combination of falls of ground (by rapid ‘rotting’ of the dykes) and an apparent link to explosive gas outbursts.

The workshop will be free to attend. Talks and presentations welcomed.
