Abstract

AbstractA highly xenolithic dolerite dyke is described which contains a large number of spinel lherzolite xenoliths. The petrology of the dolerite and the xenolith suite is described and electron probe analyses presented for the mineral phases in one of the spinel lherzolite xenoliths. The dyke geochemistry is consistent with a Permo-Carboniferous age.
