Thabaseek Deposit

Oldest Taung tufa. Although radioisotope dates suggest a young age for the tufa (1.0 mya), more recent analysis suggest that younger uranium leaked into the older depositions, and that the earlier faunal date of 2.3 mya seems the more accurate. The Thabaseek deposit provided a maximum age for the Taung hominid deposits.
