    Abstract

    Mantle xenoliths and diamonds from the 538 Ma Murowa and Sese kimberlites in Zimbabwe (Smith et al., 2004) have been used to characterise the nature of the lithosphere beneath the southern Zimbabwe Craton. These kimberlites lie near the southern edge of the Craton, intruding 2.6 Ga granite batholiths emplaced into the ~ 3.0 Ga Buhwa Greenstone Belt 10-20 km north of the boundary of the Northern Marginal Zone of the late Archean Limpopo Mobile Belt (Fig. 1). The greenstones are believed to rest on non-outcropping ~3.5 Ga gneissose Tokwe Segment basement.
