Miki-Kawesi (Kawezi, Kawisi)


Occurrence number: 
Congo (Kinshasa)
Longitude: 28.7, Latitude: -3.3

This occurrence is listed, without details, as a carbonatite by Kun (1961), but carbon and oxygen isotope determinations by Pineau and Javoy (1969) and Denaeyer (1970) indicate that this is an occurrence of sedimentary limestones.
