This talk takes you on a virtual geological field trip from the city of Cape Town to the Tankwa Karoo (red route on map below). The basement rocks of Malmesbury Group shale and Cape Granite are well exposed in the Cape Town area and the entire Cape Supergroup stack of sediment is well exposed in going from Table Mountain over Bain’s Koof, Michell’s Pass and the Karoopoort. The rocks are beautifully exposed in mountainous terrain of the Cape Fold Belt.
