Professors Morris and Richard Viljoen are twin brothers and internationally recognized geologists who discovered Komatiite in the Barberton area almost 50 years ago when they were students (studying for their PhDs in geology). This discovery paved the way for the recent declaration of the Barberton Makhonjwa Mountains as a World Heritage Site. Morris and Richard are also recipients of the Draper Medal, the highest award of the Geological Society of South Africa, the Lindgren Award of the Society of Economic Geologists of the US and past presidents of the Geological Society of South Africa.
