Die voorkoms en betekenis van hangterrasse in die Hartbeespoortdamomgewing. (The existence and significance of slope terraces in the vicinity of the Hartbeespoort Dam)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The existence of four slope terraces from the freeface over the southern slope of the Magaliesberg was ascertained by means of slope analysis. These terraces are covered by colluvium which has had no significant influence on the prominence of the terrace. In the same vicinity, on the Daspoortrand pediment, it was possible to deduce that the fine sediments originating from the Daspoort quartzite totally covered a small valley as well as a terrace on the middle pediment of the Daspoortrand. These terraces were correlated with the Early and Late Tertiary erosion surfaces respectively. (AJC).
