ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In this essay an attempt has made to establish "the relationship between surface evolution of landforms, regional and local geological structure, and the localisation of stream channels. The various remnants of stream sculpture, surfaces were mapped and correlated, and the nature of the deposits covering them were studied with the view to establish the climatic conditions which obtained during various epochs of the Tertiary Period. It was also attempted to establish the effects of epeirogenesis on stream rejuvenation in the area concerned and to present a reconstruction of the development of the Gouritz River System.
