This paper presents a brief review of the geological history of South Africa and the associated engineering geological problems related to this geological history. 2. GEOLOGY Dating of the oldest rocks in South Africa has provided an age of about billion years[2]. Like. South Africa occupies the southern tip of Africa, its coastline stretching more than 2, kilometres (1, miles) from the desert border with Namibia on the Atlantic (western) coast southwards around the tip of Africa and then northeast to the border with Mozambique on the Indian Ocean. The low-lying coastal zone is narrow for much of that distance, soon giving way to a mountainous.

The geology of South Africa is highly varied including cratons, greenstone belts, large impact craters as well as orogenic geology of the country is the base for a large mining sector that extracts gold, diamonds, iron and coal from world-class deposits. The geomorphology of South Africa consists of a high plateau rimmed to west, south and southeast by the Great Escarpment and.

Edinburgh, Oliver and Boyd, Africa - Africa - Geologic history: The African continent essentially consists of five ancient Precambrian cratons—Kaapvaal, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Congo, and West African—that were formed between about and 2 billion years ago and that basically have been tectonically stable since that time; those cratons are bounded by younger fold belts formed between 2 billion and million years ago.

The Pakhuis Formation is a lithified glacial outwash deposit and occurs on the highest points of Table Mountain, such as Maclears Beacon. It contains clusters of angular boulders and pebbles and was deposited at a time when the Gondwana continent, of which Africa is a part, was situated close to the South.
