Field Trip - Shamva - Tony Martin

Saturday, 30 November, 2019
The field trip will cover outcrops of porphyritic granite, the Umwindsi Shear Zone and parts of the Shamvaian Group within the Shamva Greenstone Belt.
 
Meet at the defunct ZUVA filling station on Enterprise Road 250 m beyond Harare Drive for departure at 08.00 so please be there before then.
 
Please, please: The convoy will re-group 200 m down the Shamva Road which is the left turn just beyond the toll. Please do not head towards Murerwa or make your own way to Shamva. 
 
Return to the filling station will be around 17.00 and the total round-trip distance will be 160 km with very little walking required. Lunch at Stop 4  (out of 6 stops) so bring your own and water for the day.
