Redox conditions in the cratonic lithosphere and implications for metasomatism

Hanger, Brendan Joseph


The redox state of the cratonic lithosphere and its impact on metasomatism have been examined using garnet peridotite xenoliths from two kimberlite pipes (Wesselton and Kimberley) in the Kaapvaal Craton, South Africa. Conventional petrologic techniques, along with electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) and laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), were used to characterise the samples and identify metasomatic events. Evidence of at least one such event was found in...[Show more]
