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 uniqueopportunity to understand the provenance of the magmas and metals that formed the Bushveld Complexitself. From a practical ler canada viewpoint, these lamprophyric dykes are major hazards to underground miningoperations through a combination of falls of ground (by rapid ‘rotting’ of the dykes) and an apparent link toexplosive gas outbursts.
The workshop will be free to attend. Talks andpresentations welcomed.
