Carrollite from
Kamfundwa Mine (Kanfundwa Mine), Kambove District, Haut-Katanga, DR Congo

Locality type:Mine
Classification
Species:Carrollite
Formula:Cu(Co,Ni)2S4
Comments:The source specimen for this report was most certainly from Kamoya South II mine. Because of a period of secrecy before the Kamoya locality was revealed, suppliers told customers that the locality for the new Carrollites was Kamfundwa or Mashamba West, but no carrollite has come from these localities to date. Up-coming article in MR By Gauthier, King, and Morgan explaining the issue.
Confirmation
Validity:Erroneously Reported
References
References:Gauthier, G., King, V., and Morgan, R., in press, Carrollite from Kamoya South II Mine.
