Connoisseur's Choice: Tarbuttite, Skorpion Mine, Lüderitz District, Namibia
Tarbuttite, Zn2(PO4)(OH), is a relatively rare secondary phosphate mineral that, according to Mindat.org (accessed April 2018), is currently known from only eight localities worldwide. From a
Solid-Phase Partitioning and Leaching Behavior of Pb and Zn from Playground Soils in Kabwe, Zambia
To assess the soil pollution derived from previous mining activities, topsoil samples from the school playground soils (SPs) were studied and showed a significant reduction in contents of Pb and Zn with the distance from the mine area.
Immobilization of Lead and Zinc Leached from Mining Residual Materials in Kabwe, Zambia: Possibility of Chemical Immobilization by Dolomite, Calcined Dolomite, and Magnesium Oxide
Massive amount of highly contaminated mining residual materials (MRM) has been left unattended and has leached heavy metals, particularly lead (Pb) and zinc (Zn) to the surrounding environments.


A reanalysis of the Kabwe Zn-Pb nonsulphide ore (central Zambia): preliminary results
within the Zambezi Supracrustal Sequence of southern Zambia. The Munali intrusion occurs along a NW-SE trending fault and comprises of an unmineralised gabbroic core (855 Ma) and a marginal
Lead isotopes of the carbonate-hosted Kabwe, Tsumeb, and Kipushi Pb-Zn-Cu sulphide deposits in relation to Pan African orogenesis in the Damaran-Lufilian Fold Belt of Central Africa
Abstract Lead isotope ratios of galena from the carbonate-hosted massive sulphide deposits of Kabwe (Pb-Zn) and Tsumeb (Pb-Zn-Cu) in Zambia and Namibia, respectively, have been measured and found to
The carbonate-hosted willemite prospects of the Zambezi Metamorphic Belt (Zambia)
Zambian willemite (Zn2SiO4) deposits occur in the metasedimentary carbonate rocks of the Proterozoic Katangan Supergroup. The most important orebodies are located around Kabwe and contain both
A Broken Hill
Thompson’s approach informs this examination of Broken Hill during the 1920s and early 1930s. While no account of the town’s history would be complete without inspiring stories of tenacious union
Lead poisoning and dental caries in the Broken Hill hominid
It is proposed here that there is a direct link between the presence of lead in the BrokenHill deposits and the dental caries of the Broken Hill 1 individual through chronic lead poisoning.
Formation of Willemite in Hydrothermal Environments
Willemite (zinc silicate) is the main zinc mineral in some carbonate-hosted ore deposits (e.g., Franklin, New Jersey; Vazante, Brazil; Beltana, South Australia; Kabwe, Zambia). Recent interest in
Classification, Genesis, and Exploration Guides for Nonsulfide Zinc Deposits
Nonsulfide zinc deposits, popularly but incorrectly termed "zinc oxide" deposits, are becoming attractive exploration targets owing to new developments in hydrometallurgy. They are divided into two
