The Kalahari Copperbelt in northwestern Botswana is characterized by structurally controlled, stratabound, mineralogically zoned copper-silver deposits hosted along a major redox boundary within a late Mesoproterozoic rift succession. Copper-silver mineralized rocks occur on the limbs and in the hinge positions of regional-scale folds that characterize the Pan-African Ghanzi-Chobe zone fold-and-thrust belt. Regional facies changes along the base of the transgressive marine D’Kar Formation, the host to the majority of mineralized rocks, delineate a series of synsedimentary basin highs and lows. The facies changes were identified through both lithostratigraphic analysis of drill holes and along-strike variations in magnetic lithostratigraphy, a...
