:dance: :dance: :dance: Thanks Elzet

I am a 30m high sandstone hill with vertical cliffs and a flat top. A large deposit with layers of soil covers me.

The Karoo sedimentary system covers most of my environment with sandstone and conglomerate ridges, with valleys derived from the softer mudstones and shales.

Mapungubwe Hill is a sandstone hill with vertical cliffs and a flat top approximately 30m high and 300, long. A substantial deposit with layers of soil covers it; remains of floors, burnt houses and household refuse.

In the south there are a few granite formations, but the Karoo sedimentary system covers most of the park in the form of sandstone and conglomerate ridges, with valleys derived from the softer mudstones and shales.

The soils vary from red-brown sandy loam to brown to dark-brown clay with high silt content. Sandy lime-rich soils occur over large areas. The region is punctuated by sandstone and conglomorate ridges and koppies. Thus the soils are generally nutrient poor, with a high salt content.

Explain "Induced seismicity" or "man-made" seismicity, as well as dams in SA that were involved in this.
