KARIN PROJECT MAKING GOOD PROGRESS

The Karoo Research Initiative (KARIN) aims to explore the southern Karoo Basin through the extraction of deep drill cores.

The Karoo refers to the sedimentary successions that were deposited on the ancient supercontinent of Gondwanaland some 300 to 170 million years ago in the area now represented by the southern part of the African continent. These Karoo-­‐aged basins contain all of the important coal deposits of southern Africa as well as thick successions of black carbon-­‐ bearing shales that are a potential source of shale gas.
