Karroo Igneous Activity and Tectonics in South-East Southern Rhodesia


DURING the period 1959–60 the work of the Research Institute of African Geology on Karroo igneous activity in Southern Rhodesia was extended to include the suite of Karroo igneous rocks which lie between the Lundi and Sabi Rivers some eighty to ninety miles to the north-east of those described by Cox et al. 1 (Fig. 1a). It is hoped to publish the detailed results of the work on this area soon.
