Reca Project

Mont Baduel

Mont Baduel is a ca. 100m high hill located in the city of Cayenne (French Guiana). The top of the hill is composed of a bauxitic-lateritic profile which has been subject of former studies. As the area is partly inhabited and party inaccessible, sampling was hampered.

For the RECA project we sampled different Fe-Al duricrusts as well as one saprolite sample which are dated by (U-Th)/He dating and EPR dating.
