Mineralische Bodenschätze im südlichen Afrika

Article metrics


PROF. SCHNEIDERHOHN was one of those who had the good fortune to attend the fifteenth meeting of the International Geological Congress held in South Africa in 1929, the conferences and excursions in connexion with which ranged over an area extending from Cape Colony to Northern Rhodesia and from South-West Africa to Natal. Because of his special knowledge of the geology and ores of South-West Africa he acted as a director of one of the excursions to that region, conducting a large party over the mining field of Otavi, of which he had made a study in previous years. He also took part in several excursions conducted by others. During his travels he kept records of the areas visited, and on returning to Europe wrote these up into a series of articles, which were published by Metallwirtschaft between December 1929 and June 1930.
