An open-pit mine on an uranium deposit in the central Namib Desert, at Trekopje, approximately 65 Km north-east of Swakopmund. The mineral licence area covers approximately 37,368 ha, and includes parts of the farms Trekkopje, klein Trekkopje and Arandis. The vertical extent of the mineralisation, which is roughly stratiform, is variable, but most of it occurs within 30 m below surface. (J. Kinahan, Quaternary Research Services, Windhoek)
