Volcanism of the Palaeoproterozoic Bushveld Large Igneous Province: the Rooiberg Group, Kaapvaal Craton, South Africa Abstract The volcanic rocks of the Rooiberg Group represent the uppermost unit in the Palaeoproterozoic Transvaal Supergroup and form one of the largest provinces of silicic volcanic rocks in the world.   The Late Archaean-Early Proterozoic Transvaal Sequence is preserved within the Transvaal, Kanye and Griqualand West basins, with the Ma Bushveld Complex intrusive into the upper portion of the succession within the Transvaal basin. Both Transvaal and Bushveld rocks are extensively mineralized, the former containing large deposits of iron, manganese, asbestos, Cited by: An overview of the geology of the Transvaal Sequence and Bushveld Complex, South Africa Article (PDF Available) in Mineralium Deposita 30(2) April with Reads How we measure 'reads'.

The Transvaal Supergroup is best known for excellent exposures of a mixed siliciclastic-carbonate ramp grading upward into an extensive carbonate platform overlain by banded iron formation. Deposited on the Kaapvaal Craton between and Ma, the Transvaal Supergroup is best preserved in the Transvaal and Griqualand West structural basins. Welcome to the Rooiberg google satellite map!
