Goanikontes, Namibia

Hi there,

I spent the whole day prospecting around Goanikotes trying to find the famous Bolwoodite locality without success (featured in Bode Verlag book ‘Namibia’) .

It was a lot of fun anyway; nice landscapes and animals around but nobody knowing where the surficial workings are.

Is there someone here who already paid a visit to the place and could help me? Some pictures to come soon.

No I didn't, I found his article on the web; but apparently he didn't visited the site himself.

Hi, next time, ask the workers at the house. I have been there a few times, but did not look for it. Rolf
