U^Pb and Lu^Hf isotope analyses, obtained by laser ablation-sector field-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry on zircon grains from 37 granitoid samples indicate that the Kalahari Craton consists of at least five distinct terranescBarberton South (BS), Barberton North (BN), Murchison^Northern Kaapvaal (MNK), Limpopo Central Zone (LCZ), and Francistowncwhich underwent different crustal evolutions, and were successively accreted at c. 3� 23 Ga, 2� 9 Ga and 2� 65^2� 7 Ga. The investigated… CONTINUE READING
