 Log Formation:
No.From (m)To (m) Log Formation
1.0 20No chips recovered-Kalahari loose Sands with minor calcrete.
2.20 30Red-orange, brown-grey fine grained weathered Sandstone.
3.30 130IRONSTONE? Avery uniform lithology throughout, dark grey homogenous siltstone-appears to slightly metamorphosed-pelitic. With occasional quartz and calcite veins. Occasional this layers of red/pink layers.
4.130 150Low magnetic susceptibility appears to correspond to a colour variation in what is otherwise a uniform rock type-slightly red/pink-grey.
5.150 220Dark grey (peletic) homogenous siltstone-very fine grained Sandstone (IRONSTONE).
6.220 296Colour variation (red) is the only apparent difference causing low mag (less fe rich). 296m-T.D.
