Author: Caswell P V; Baker B H
Publisher: Nairobi: Government Printer 1953
Edition/Format: Book Book
Summary:
This report describes an area of some 1,750 square miles lying in the extreme southeastern corner of Kenya; the area is bounded by latitude 4° S., longitude 39° E., the Kenya-Tanganyika border, and the Indian Ocean. The rocks exposed consist of sediments ranging in age from Permo-Carboniferous to Recent and which represent continental, lacustrine and marine conditions of deposition. Igneous and pyroclastic rocks are  Read more...

Abstract:

This report describes an area of some 1,750 square miles lying in the extreme southeastern corner of Kenya; the area is bounded by latitude 4° S., longitude 39° E., the Kenya-Tanganyika border, and the Indian Ocean. The rocks exposed consist of sediments ranging in age from Permo-Carboniferous to Recent and which represent continental, lacustrine and marine conditions of deposition. Igneous and pyroclastic rocks are confined to Jombo Hill, an alkaline intrusion, and associated satellite vent agglomerates and dykes. An account is given of the various rocks, their genesis and their structures, and an attempt is made to correlate them with other areas. The economic prospects of the area are assessed and the possibility of the presence of coal-bearing strata is discussed.
