Tchabal Gandaba


Occurrence number: 
Longitude: 12.8, Latitude: 7.75

The map of Guiraudie (1955) indicates an area of basaltic lavas at Tchabal Gandaba with scattered outcrops of basalt, trachyte and rare rhyolite to the northeast and east. By comparison with other occurrences of these rocks on the Adamawa plateau they are likely to be alkaline.
