Carbonaceous chondrite (CR)
Two stony fragments of 314.5 and 29.5 g, fitting together,
were recognised by E. Twelker while examining a parcel
of meteorites purchased from Burkina-Faso which, according
to the vendor, were found in the Gao-Guenie strewnfield.
Mineralogy and classification (A. N. Krot, UH):
Abundant large, metal-rich porphyritic olivine, olivinepyroxene
and pyroxene Type I chondrules (Fa = 3.11.7, n
= 20; Fs = 2.71.3, n = 18); many chondrules are layered
and surrounded by silica-rich igneous rims (Krot et al.,
2003). Type II chondrules and chondrules of nonporphyritic
textures are rare. Anorthite-rich chondrules
(Krot and Keil, 2002) are rather common. Refractory inclusions
are rare and include amoeboid olivine aggregates
(Fa = 0.60.6, n = 36), and melilite-rich CAIs; melilite is
commonly replaced by anorthite. Neither chondrules nor
refractory inclusions show evidence for alteration. The
observed characteristics of the meteorite suggest that it is
CR carbonaceous chondrite. Specimens: type specimen 20

Bencubbin-like meteorite
A conical meteorite fell in a corn field near the village of Bogga
Dingare after a bright fireball was witnessed moving west to east and
an explosion was heard. The local people hammered the meteorite
into many pieces, and most of the material was dispersed. The original
mass is unknown, although secondhand reports indicate that it had a
volume of ~20 000 cm3, and thus a mass of ~100 kg.  Material that
almost certainly came from this fall has been sold in the last few
years elsewhere in Nigeria, with claims that the specimens were new
finds.  A preliminary description of the meteorite appears in Islam
and Ostaficzuk (1988).  Description (L. Karwowski, USil, based on
the original mass):  contains metal nodules, 1.5.8 mm in diameter,
and silicate nodules 1.15 mm in diameter with fan-like aggregates
of pyroxene; 60% of nodules are metal.  Description and classification
(A. Rubin and G. Kallemeyn, UCLA, based on a 282 g fragment
purchased in 2000 near the village of Gidan Wire in Kaduna state):
consists of large metal nodules containing variable amounts of troilite,
and cryptocrystalline silicate spheroids; silicates include pyroxene
(Fs1.2Wo1.3) and rare olivine (Fa3); siderophile abundance pattern
in metal is similar to that of Bencubbin; shock stage, S2; weathering
grade, W0.  Oxygen isotopes (R. Clayton, UChi):  light-colored
silicates, 17O = .2.19., 18O = +0.53.; dark-colored silicates,
17O = .1.78., 18O = +0.98..  Specimens: 12.2 kg, mostly
disintegrated, UMaid; 815 g, MZ; type specimen, 64 g, UCLA;
remainder of 282 g mass, Twelker.
