The present study deals with sepiolite in pan deposits of the south-western Kalahari, as part of a wider investigation of distribution patterns of authigenic minerals in lake basins of the Aminuis region in eastern Namibia.

However, the complicated geological conditions and resultant authigenic mineral structures described in these publications resemble, but do not equal those determined and described in the present study.
Zeolites may occur naturally as authigenic minerals formed from volcanic glass and various rock-forming minerals by interaction with aqueous solution or fluid in many geochemical environments (Breck, 1974; Mumpton, 1977; Gottardi and Galli, 1985; Hay, 1986; Boles, 1988).
According to the present study, the carriers of the remanent magnetization are (i) allogenic and synsedimentary and/or early diagenetic authigenic ironbearing minerals of the primary sedimentary siliciclastic and carbonate rocks and (u) alteration products of primary minerals or new authigenic minerals formed during latediagenetic, hydrothermal, or weathering processes.

This is valid for two groups of elements: Rb, Y, and Th that are mainly related to feldspars and other clastic allothigenic minerals, and Mn, Ni, Zn, As, Sr, Pb, and U, which could be carried also by clay minerals and most fine-grained, unspecified authigenic minerals.
