The Vredefort granophyre dikes have long been recognized as being derived from the now-eroded Vredefort melt sheet. One dike, in particular, the Daskop granophyre dike, is notable for a high abundance of lithic clasts derived from various stratigraphic levels. In this study, we mapped the distribution of the clasts throughout the continuously exposed section of the dike using field mapping and aerial drone photography and attempted to constrain the emplacement mechanisms of the dike. We found that the clasts are not homogeneously spread but instead are distributed between clast-rich zones, which have up to 50% by area clasts, and...
