The present study investigates and compares the silver contents of individual gold grains ( true fineness) on a regional scale in the Kimberley Reef of the East Rand goldfield. Two distinctly different populations of gold particles can be delineated by means of geostatistical procedures

Evidence of partial remobilisation of U exists in the form of secondary U–Ti-phases, mainly brannerite and uraniferous leucoxene, subordinately as secondary uraninite, which occur as small euhedral grains or minute fills along microfractures, or as microcrystalline aggregates (Ramdohr, 1958; Schidlowski, 1981; Oberthür, 1987; Depiné et a. 2013).

The Witwatersrand (locally the Rand or, less commonly, the Reef) is a 56-kilometre-long (35 mi), north-facing scarp in South Africa. This east-west-running scarp can be traced with only one short gap, from Bedfordview (about 10 km west of .

Introduction The gold fields of the Witwatersrand Basin in South Africa are, by a landslide, the largest single gold producing district in the world. Layers of sedimentary rock in the Witwatersrand show that is was once a shallow sea. This sea was formed approximately 3 billion years ago after the collision between the Zimbabwe and Kaapvaal cratons. Ancient river systems feeding into the basin eroded the surrounding highlands and over a period of about 260 million years, deposited layers of quartz pebble conglomerates, sandstones and shales.
The Witwatersrand Gold Rush was a gold rush in 1886 that led to the establishment of Johannesburg, South Africa. It was a key part of the Mineral Revolution. There had always been rumours of a modern-day "El Dorado" in the folklore of the native tribes that roamed the plains of the South African highveld and in that of the gold miners who had come from all over the world to seek out their fortunes on the alluvial mines of Barberton and Pilgrim's Rest, in what is now known as the province of Mpumalanga.
Discovery of the Witwatersrand goldfields in the 1880s and the recognition .
Discovery of the Witwatersrand goldfields in the 1880s and the recognition of the importance of the Central African Copperbelt in the early part of the 20th century reinforced the view that Africa was a treasure house of mineral wealth and was underexplored-a view that still prevails today (2016) with a very considerable number of exploration and mining companies active throughout. Uranium mineralization also occurs in the Karoo Basin of South Africa (Turner, 1985), with Stapleton (1978) proposing an important role for organic matter.
