Ma-Old "trace fossils" from the Transvaal Supergroup in the Transvaal (Information circular / Economic Geology Research Unit) Unknown Binding – January 1, Author: Noel Tyler. The Transvaal Supergroup is preserved within three structurally-constrained basins on the Kaapvaal craton of southern Africa: the Transvaal and Griqualand West Basins in South Africa and the Kanye.

The Transvaal Supergroup is a stratigraphic unit in northern South Africa and southern Botswana, situated on the Kaapvaal Craton, roughly between 23 and 29 degrees southern latitude and 22 to 30 degrees eastern longitude.

It is dated to the boundary between the Archean and Proterozoic eras, roughly 2, Mya. The Segwagwa Group, which is the base of the Upper Transvaal Supergroup in Bots- wana, correlative to the Pretoria Group in the Transvaal Basin (South Africa), is characterized by an essentially clastic sedimentary-lesser volcanic succession.
