Abstract: Apatite concentrates obtained from a carbonatite of the Tororo complex contain cogenetic fluid and solid primary inclusions. The solid inclusions are commonly composed of calcite and shortite and these minerals, together with the host apatite, were deposited from aqueous fluids at approximately 400 °C.
