Approximate Mineral and Chemical Composition

Throughout the Witwatersrand, gold ores occur in sheets or reefs originally deposited horizontally under water. The thickness of the reefs range between a lie of grit to several meters, with an average of 300mm. The sediments were also intersected by dykes and sills of dolomite, diabase and synite intruding existing faults. The reefs can be in the form of either course conglomerates, rock pebbles and cemented in a silicate matrix. Pebbles usually derived from vein quarts, may also consist of quartzitc, chert jasper and quartz porphyry. The matrix consists of pure silica, but also contains minute flakes of muscovite and prophylite as well as visible pyrite and other sulphides.The gold is usually confined to the matrix and tends to be concentrated along bedding planes (Vermeulen, 2001).
