Journal Article

Journal of the Geological Society (1988) 145 (1): 95–106.
... Volcanic carbonatites of the Kaluwe complex, Zambia D. C . TURNER Department of Earth Sciences, University of Leeds, Leeds LS2 9JT, UK Abstract: The Kaluwe carbonatite forms a thick, gently dipping sheet with a crescentic outcrop nearly 10 km long. It is composed largely of layered fragmental rocks...

Journal of the Geological Society (1991) 148 (1): 13–15.
...D. C. TURNER; D. C. REX Abstract The Kaluwe complex, a stratified sheet-like body of volcaniclastic carbonatite has given K-Ar ages of 113–101 Ma. The carbonatite overlies Upper Karoo sandstone, but its cover of continental siliciclastic sediments is not Karoo as previously thought, but post-dates...

Journal of the Geological Society (1990) 147 (2): 213–216.
...B. T. NGWENYA; D. K. BAILEY Abstract Fine grained carbonatite in the Kaluwe complex has been inferred, on textural grounds, to be calcified natrocarbonatite. Electron microprobe analysis, however, shows that the brown laths thought to be pseudo-nyerereite are dolomitic, with Sr values much higher...

The Canadian Mineralogist (2005) 43 (6): 2049–2068.
... as a group name applied to a complex of related carbonate and silicate rocks in a magmatic or extrusive complex. Primary carbonatites, in terms of mineralogical-genetic classifications, rather than simple modal classifications, can be divided into a group of bona fide magmatic carbonatites formed from...

Mineralogical Magazine (2002) 66 (3): 379–384.
.... In marked contrast to the fragmental rocks of the complex, this is a chilled carbonatite melt, in which the magnetite has a completely different composition from that in the vast bulk of Kaluwe (Table 2 ), from which it is distinguished by high Ti, Al and Mg. Some magnetites in coarse carbonatites have...

... identified at any other locality. Enrichment of carbonatites in alkali elements has been proposed based on the observation that many carbonatite-bearing complexes are surrounded by a metasomatic aureole (a fenite), during the formation of which sodium and potassium were metasomatically added ( Woolley, 1969...
