South African Journal of Geology (2018) 121 (4): 383–402.
...E. Kovaleva; M.S. Huber; F. Zaccarini Abstract Vredefort Granophyre dykes are generally considered to be a part of impact melt, which intruded downward from the melt sheet of the Vredefort impact structure (South Africa). This work reports enigmatic textural inhomogeneities found within the Daskop...

...Christian Koeberl; Wolf Uwe Reimold; Steven B. Shirey Abstract The origin of granophyric rock dikes (the Vredefort Granophyre) at the 2 Ga Vredefort structure in South Africa has been controversial. They have been interpreted as either impact melt or igneous intrusions. Most Vredefort Granophyre...

... of locally occurring granitoids and amphibolite. Harmonic least-squares mixing (HMX) calculations also do not indicate that additional components, such as a Vredefort Granophyre-like impact melt intrusive phase, contributed to the formation of these PTB. Absence of evidence (such as significant displacements...
