The Segwagwa Group of southeastern Botswana, a correlate of the Pretoria Group of the Transvaal Supergroup of South Africa, consists of a major sequence of siliciclastic sedimentary rocks, minor carbonates and basaltic to andesitic lavas and tuffs straddling the Western and Central Domains of the Kaapvaal Craton. The Segwagwa Group unconformably overlies the Taupone Dolomite Group, a correlative of the South African Chuniespoort/Ghaap Groups of the Transvaal Supergroup. SHRIMP U-Pb analyses of...[Show more]
